February 26, 2013‐ New Delhi, India

The Government has decided that the disinvestment proceeds with effect from the fiscal year 2013-14 will be credited to the existing “public account” under the head National Investment Fund (NIF) and will be used for subscribing to the shares being issued by the Central Public Sector Enterprises (CPSEs) including Public Sector Banks (PSBs) and Public Sector Insurance Companies (PSICs), on rights basis so as to ensure 51% ownership of the Government is not diluted; and for recapitalisation of PSBs and PSICs.
