List of Maharatna, Navratna & Miniratna CPSEs in India

The Department of Public Enterprises is the Nodal Government agency to issue guidelines and regulation for the various state-owned Central Public-sector Enterprises in India. The government of India made certain rules to promote best performing CPSEs and rewards with the status of Maharatna, Navratna and Miniratna-I & II categories. This division is based on the financial performance of the company.

There is one more categorization which is based on manpower, geographical presence, and revenue of the firm. Here Govt Companies are divided into four schedules namely A, B, C & D.

    • Yes, you can transfer the bond amount. Have you informed the BSNL authorities about selection in FCI? If not, intimate them as early as possible and request for NOC & Bond amount transfer for a CPSE to other CPSE.

    • If you look at present financial condition of BSNL, then is no chance of 3rd PRC in BSNL due to affordability clause in Pay revision guidelines.However, when BSNL start earning profits, then the pay revision may be implemented in Government Telecom Company.
