    Disinvestment in Public Sector Enterprises

    The founding fathers of our republic used the publicenterprises as an essential and vibrant element in the building-

    up of Indias economy. One of the basic objectives of starting

    the public enterprises in India was to build infrastructure for

    economic development and rapid economic growth. Since their

    inception, public enterprises have played an important role in

    achieving the objective of economic growth with social justice.

    However, economic compulsions, viz., deterioration of balance

    of payment position and increasing fiscal deficit led to adoption

    of a new approach towards the public enterprises in 1991.Disinvestment of public enterprises is one of the policy

    measures adopted by the government of India for providing

    financial discipline and improve the performance of this

    enterprises in tune with the new economic policy of

    Liberalisation, Privatisation and Globalisation (LPG) through the

    1991 Industrial Policy Statement.

    During the year 1997-98, a major initiative has been

    taken to grant substantial autonomy full powers to incur capital

    expenditure, to nine selected public sector enterprises, called

    Navaratnas with the view to assisting them in becoming global

    giants. Later, two more enterprises were added to this list.

    Enhanced financial, managerial and operational autonomy was

    also granted to other profit-making enterprises called Mini-

    Ratnas numbering approximately 97. A Public Sector

    Disinvestment Commission has been constituted in 1996. The

    terms of reference of the Commission include inter-alia drawing

    up comprehensive overall long-term disinvestment program for

    the public enterprises, determining the extent of

    disinvestment, preferred mode of disinvestment etc.

    An overview of the objectives of the New Economic Policy

    clearly manifests that the disinvestment in public enterprises

    are a definite intervention measures to help achieve the

    broader macro objectives of Indian economy.

    Overview of the Public Sector

    1.1 Public sector enterprises are companies

    established by the central government under

    the Companies Act or as statutory

    corporations under specific statues of

    parliament. Public Enterprises were established in the early

    1950s for rapid industrial and economic growth, to create

    necessary infrastructure, for employment generations, to

    promote balanced regional development and to assist the

    growth of other industries.

    1.2 There were five Public Enterprises owned by the Central

    Government at the beginning of the First Five Year Plan with a

    total investment of Rs.29 crore. By the end of the Seventh Plan

    in 1990, the number of Public Enterprises had increased to 244

    with a total investment of Rs.99,329 crore. Thereafter, though

    the capital invested increased to Rs.3,93,057 crore in 2005-06,

    the number of Public Enterprises declined to 239. In 2006-07,there were 247 Central Public Sector Enterprises in India, as

    compared to 236 in 1997-98.

    1.3 The public sector presence is predominant in public

    utilities and infrastructure. Railways, post & telegraph, ports,

    airports and power are dominated by Public Enterprises or

    department-owned enterprises. In the roads sector, while some

    roads are owned and maintained by the private sector, publicly

    owned and maintained roads dominate. Road freight capacity isalmost entirely private, while road passenger traffic capacity is

    also significantly privately owned and managed. In telecom, the

    public sector continues to be dominant in the provision of fixed

    line telephone services, while private licencees are operating in

    some urban areas. Mobile services are predominantly private,

    particularly in urban areas, while inter-state and international

    linking services are significantly privately managed and owned.

    1.4 In the tradable goods sector, the public sector is dominantin coal; oil and gas exploration, development, extraction and

    transportation, though nearly one third of oil refining capacity

    is now owned by the private sector. The public sector is also a

    significant player in steel, fertilizer, aluminum and copper. In

    the engineering industry, the public sector has been losing

    market share except in electrical machinery, where BHEL is asignificant player. In construction and project services, the

    public sector is a minor player. The bulk of the remaining

    tradable sector is privately owned and managed.
