The decision on the quantum of funds to be infused immediately to avert a possible shut down is to be reportedly decided on Monday after a meeting between the management and lenders.
As many as 1,000 pilots of the union, National Aviator's Guild (NAG), will meet on Monday morning to decide on whether the pilots will fly or not, due to non-payment of salaries. Its employees are expecting to be paid their pending salaries once the fresh funding comes through.
Around the same time, the company announced it was low on working capital.
Not only the airline but also the journey over the past four-five months have been extremely hard for ground staff at the airline, they have been humiliated by passengers over the cancellation of flights besides facing financial hurdles.
The airline will create appropriate security over the company's assets for securing the existing facilities extended by the lenders and the proposed immediate funding support of up to Rs 1,500 crore by way of an appropriate debt instrument.

However, German ministers stressed in the minutes that "upload filters" would not be made mandatory in Germany. Six member states, including Italy and the Netherlands , voted against it.
It is learnt that the lenders are willing to infuse Rs 20 crore daily till May 7 as they expect the new investor to take control of the airline on the date and the remaining legalities and all other steps of the stake sale process can then be completed by May 31.
According to the NAG, it has also called upon other departments to join the gathering at the headquarters as a show of unity.
However, in a communication to its members, the pilots body announced postponement of its "no pay no work" call for the second time in less than two weeks, saying it wanted to give more time to the company which is struggling to survive due to a severe paucity of cash.
