Disinvestment (sale of shares) of valued Public Sector Units seems to be the most important work of the Modi government. The latest is the move of the government to disinvest PSU shares targetting about Rs. 72,500 crores, much more than the last year. NITI AYOG had recommended closure or strategic sale of about 70 PSUs.

There should be an end to the cheap sale of the ‘Family Silver’. These PSUs have served the nation in a big way and they can still help the nation for progress.
