with 0 Comment


The President’s Address to Joint Session of Parliament on 4th June 2009 and Finance Minister’s Budget Speech on 6th July, 2009, articulated the intention of the Government to encourage people participation in the disinvestment programme. It had been mentioned that public sector undertakings are the wealth of the nation, and part of this wealth should rest in the hands of the people while retaining at least 51% Government equity in our enterprises.

Now, Government has decided: (i) all profitable listed CPSEs should meet the mandatory listing of 10% public ownership; and (ii) all unlisted CPSEs having positive networth, no accumulated losses and having a net profit in the three preceding consecutive years should get listed on the stock exchanges.

The disinvestment proceeds would be channelized into the National Investment Fund (NIF). The corpus comprising deposits from April 2009 till March 2012 would be available in full for investment as capital expenditure in specific social sector schemes determined by Planning Commission and Department of Expenditure. The status quo ante of NIF will be restored from April 2012.

Rajasthan State Pollution Control Board today served a show-cause notice to IOC here asking why a legal action should not be taken against it over the depot fire incident.

"A show cause notice under Environment Protection Act has been issued to the IOC Jaipur office seeking a reply within 15 days," official sources told PTI here.

The devastating fire that broke out on October 29 at the IOC depot here had claimed 12 lives.

"IOC has not followed the provisions of EPA and not even sought any required permission of the state PCB for site plan approval. Hence, the company has been asked that why a legal action cannot be taken against it," they said.

A case could be filed with the district court in the matter and the PCB would wait for a reply, they added.
