Similarly, the salaries of the executives whose annual gross pay is above Rs 25 lakh have been slashed by 20 per cent," the source, privy to the development, told .

The maximum reduction in pay is for the senior and top management that has taken 30 per cent cut, he said.

A GVK Group spokesperson, in response to an e-mail query on the paycut, said, "We do not comment on internal matters."

The response to a query on this issue to Group's Vice-Chairman and Managing Director of Mumbai international Airport Ltd (MIAL) Sanjay Reddy remained unanswered.
