It is reported by Times of India that NDA government will seek to raise up to a record $11.7 billion in asset sales in its maiden Budget this week.
The privatization target could reach 700 billion rupees, almost equal to all proceeds over the last four years, in the new Budget going to be presented in the Parliament this week.

If this is true, then many PSUs will be disinvested and some of them may have strategical partners also, which means, gradually the PSUs will be handed over to private companies as in the case of VSNL, Centaur Hotels, BALCO etc., which was done during the last NDA government.

The government can expect mighty struggles from the workers and their unions.
