New Delhi: The trouble for Kingfisher Airlines seems far from over as the debt-ridden carrier is likely to face another frizzing of its bank accounts. A senior Finance Ministry official said that the Vijay Mallya-led carrier has failed to pay its service tax dues for the month of December 2011.

According to reports, the Kingfisher Airlines have paid Rs 10 crore for April-November 2011 period in arrears in the month of November last year.

Sources said, the Finance Ministry had given the company the deadline of January 6 to clear the outstanding service tax dues but no communication had been established with the ministry from the side of the carrier regarding the issue.

The prevailing state clearly illustrates the poor financial condition of Kingfisher airlines.

The carrier has a long list of debts which amounts to whopping Rs 4, 000 crores. Notably, the carrier is under the debt of Rs 1457.78 crores from State Bank of India alone. Further debt of Rs 727.63 crores, Rs 710.33 crore s and Rs 575.27 crores is due with the Reserve Bank, the Punjab National Bank and the Bank of India respectively.
