They said that that NITI Aayog has been asked to finalise the first list of public sector enterprises to be put up for privatisation.

This list would focus on profit making entities operating in non-core areas that could help the government realise better valuations and good investor interest.

“The idea is to bring better performing companies that have to be privatised first so that investor interest is generated in government’s strategic sale programme. Water will be tested for loss-making and such entities later,” said the person quoted earlier.
