List of Maharatna, Navratna & Miniratna CPSEs in India

Public Sector undertakings (PSUs) or CPSEs are mainly divided in Maharatna, Navratna, Miniratna Category I & II on the basis of their financial performance, net worth, revenue, profit etc.  Guidelines for the criteria are issued by Department of Public Enterprises which is a nodal department for all CPSEs.



As a graduate engineer, one should be aware that which Company comes under which category or status. A Maharatna Company criterion is based on a purely financial health of the company. They provide best CTC & salary in hand pay & perks as compared to another category of PSUs. So it should be your first choice for a Government Company Job. Navratna should be 2nd & Miniratna should be the 3rd choice for Government Company job.

    I have done Diploma and B-Tech in civil engineering. Please inform me which company (PSU) offers job for civil engineer with and without GATE and what is the process.

    • You have to check employment newspaper regularly for diploma level jobs in Maharatna Companies. They may conduct exam or interview for the selection.

  6. Hello sir , sir presently i am working with bsnl je since 1 and half month ,, and i also got selected to FCI(food corporation of india) .. i want to join FCI .. can the bond in bsnl transfer to FCI .. Plz help me

    • 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.

  7. I am a 3rd year student at NIT Trichy, B.Tech Civil Engineering.

    Please do reply.

    • Please visit the each company’s official website. You will get the telephone number or any other details to contact the officers there. Afer that you can discuss the internship program.

  8. Hello,
    I’m a dentist (MDS) looking for a PSU job for the year 2018.. can you please guide me as to how to apply.. thank you

    • You have to check the Employment Newspaper weekly for the Doctors Vacancies in top PSUs. The Public sector companies don’t recruit Doctors every year; they issued advertisement by the vacant post. So keep checking.

  9. how do all these companies recruit ?
    Only few companies recruit through GATE and a few through their own exam . What do others do ?

    i am electronics engineer and i want details .Please send it to my email ID
