The government would prefer selling Air India, its debt-laden carrier to a domestic buyer, news agency Reuters reported citing a government source on Monday. It is mulling to sell the airline's various businesses - which include ground-handling, domestic operations and international flights - in parts, the report added. The state-run carrier, which is under a debt burden of over Rs 50,000 crore, got an in-principle nod from the government for divestment of its stake sale in June.
