Vadodara/UNI: An aircraft of the cash-crunched public sector airliner Air India has been lying grounded at Vadodara airport in Gujarat for over two weeks as it was unable to replace its faulty engine owing to tax dues related issues, official sources said on Thursday.

The engine of the Air India Airbus which had landed here in the evening of Dec 31 as flight number AI819 (Delhi-Vadodara) had developed some technical snag, Airport Director Charan Singh said.

''It is parked at our airport since then,'' he said.

Singh informed that even though this particular aircraft was grounded the operation of flight number AI819 was on with another aircraft.

Meanwhile, Air India sources said that the aircraft needed change in the spare parts of its engine to be able to fly again but the cash crunched airliner was unable to send the spares owing to around Rs 100 crore GST (tax) dues and related issues and incompleteness of papers and E-way bills.

Sources, however, added that efforts were on to complete the formalities and send the spares for replacement of faulty engine at the earliest.
