Government today accorded “in-principle” approval for strategic disinvestment of Allahabad-based Bharat Pumps and Compressors Limited. The decision was taken at a meeting of the Cabinet Committee on Economic Affairs chaired by Prime Minister Narendra Modi. Strategic disinvestment denotes sale of substantial portion of government shareholding in identified central public sector enterprises (CPSE), up to 50 per cent or more, along with transfer of management control.

With the help of the financial assistance, statutory dues such as provident fund and gratuity of retired employees will be discharged and the outstanding dues of CISF will be cleared.
