As part of efforts to ensure safety of women, public sector units (PSUs) are being roped in to build toilets, a priority area for NDA government, Minister for Women and Child Development Maneka Gandhi has said.
The government today directed the
PSUs to ensure that its decision to carve out 4.5 per cent
sub-quota for minorities out of 27 per cent for OBCs, is
implemented in all recruitments from January 1, this year.
The govt is considering a proposal to elevate some Navratna PSUs to Maharatna companies to allow them more freedom regarding investment, Bhaskar Chatterjee, secretary of the Union govt`s department of public enterprises said.
Almost all the nationalised banks are seeking fresh infusion of funds by the government to enhance their capacity to lend and maintain healthy solvency ratio, an indicator of bank`s ability to meet the long-term debt requirement.
