Indian Railway Finance Corporation Limited Key Developments

Government Reportedly Plans To Sell Stakes In Firms Managed By Indian Railways

Indian government is planning to sell stake in Steel Authority of India Limited (BSE:500113), NHPC Ltd. (BSE:533098), Oil and Natural Gas Corp. Ltd. (BSE:500312), Power Finance Corporation Limited (BSE:532810), and Rural Electrification Corporation Limited (BSE:532955). The government also plans to divest its stake in certain infrastructure companies of Indian Railways. A source told PTI, “We are in talks with the Railway Board for sale of government equity in certain public sector units (‘PSUs) managed by Indian Railways.” There are about half a dozen companies which are managed by Indian Railways. These include RITES Ltd., Ircon International Limited, Indian Railway Finance Corporation Limited, Indian Railway Catering and Tourism Corporation Ltd., and RailTel Corporation of India Ltd. Since these firms are not listed it is likely that the initial public offer will be accompanied by government offloading its stake. Indian Railways is facing a cash crunch and is looking at various ways to mobilize resources for undertaking its expansion program. According to the news report, the government has already pitched for reforms in Railways by proposing Foreign Direct Investment and Public Private Partnership to meet the resource crunch. The source stated, “The disinvestment will be a part of the government exercise to engage private players in ancillary services as part of overall agenda.” The Finance Ministry plans to raise around INR 434 billion through disinvestment in PSUs in 2014.
