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.

Privatization Process Of NHPC Began

The disinvestment process for the sale of Government's 11.36% stake out of its shareholding of 85.96% in NHPC Ltd. (BSE:533098) has started. The government plans to engage merchant bankers and selling brokers and has invited proposals from reputed merchant bankers for the process. The sale will be conducted through an offer for sale through stock exchanges. The NHPC share was trading at INR 23.7 on the BSE.

Finmin To Outstrip Disinvestment Target

The Indian government's Financial Year 2015 proceeds from disinvestment could turn out to be even higher if a plan prepared by the finance ministry materializes. According to the ministry's internal estimate, reviewed by FE, from the stake sales being lined up for the year in 11 Public Sector Units, including Oil and Natural Gas Corp. Ltd. (BSE:500312), Coal India Limited (BSE:533278), Steel Authority of India Limited (BSE:500113) and NHPC Ltd. (BSE:533098), the government could fetch INR 137.32 billion more than the INR 434.25 billion budgeted.
