In a new directive, national carrier Air India has asked all cabin and cockpit crew to say 'Jai Hind' after every announcement made on board. 

"With immediate effect, all are required to announce "Jai Hind" at the end of every announcement after a slight pause and with much fervour,” read the circular issued by Air India to its crew.

The national carrier presently has around 3500 cabin crew and over 1200 cockpit crew.

The directive comes days after Ashwani Lohani took charge as Chairman and Managing Director of Air India once again.

Interestingly, Lohani had issued such a directive earlier also in 2016 during his previous tenure as Air India CMD.
