The sum paid includes landing and parking charges. Out of the amount, Rs 75 crore has been received on account of operations at the Hyderabad airport (GHIAL) and the remainder Rs 340 crore is for Delhi airport (DIAL).
GMR spokesperson said
, “The national carrier Air India is an important business partner for us. It is heartening for us to note that AIR India has made large payments over the last two months to clear the outstanding dues to the GMR group.

The national carrier decided to shift its hub from Mumbai to Delhi in the recent past owing to the constraint free capacity and efficient operations at Delhi Airport.
