The Central Vigilance Commission (CVC) on Thursday said it will look into the allegations of bribery against officials of state-owned BHEL and NTPC once their names are disclosed by the US Department of Justice.
Officials of Indian PSUs like BHEL and NTPC appear to be the beneficiaries of bribes that were doled out by a California-based valve company to bag lucrative contracts, mostly for tools used in the construction of power plants.
The state-run BHEL is in talks with private companies like Larsen & Toubro and Pipavav Shipyard to jointly build off-shore oil rigs, a business proposition it had shelved earlier, says a company official.
BHEL would recruit about 4,000 people, including executive engineers, annually at least for the next three years as the company is embarking on new joint ventures, a top company official said on Thursday.
The Public sector Bharat Heavy Electricals Ltd (BHEL), a premier engineering enterprise in energy-related and infrastructure sector, as part of enhancing overseas business, would set up a marketing office in Kazakhistan.
