Appearing for the pilots, senior advocate Geeta Luthra told Justice Reva Khetrapal that the pilots would immediately call off the strike and join their respective duties within 48 hours.

The striking pilots will have to give joining reports and terminated pilots will have to give "willingness to join duty" report to the Air India management within 48 hours.

The pilots' decision to end the strike came after the Air India management assured the court that it would "sympathetically" consider their grievances.

"The Air India management shall sympathetically consider the grievances of pilots, including the aspects of reinstatement of those pilots whose service has been terminated consequent to this strike," the judge said.
