What is disinvestment
The process of selling the government’s stake in government companies (PSUs) is called disinvestment or dis-investment. The government has a significant stake in many companies. Generally these companies are called public undertakings or PSUs.
Disinvestment is actually an important source of money for the government. The government invites retail and institutional investors (this includes foreign investors) to invest in that PSU by issuing an offer for sale of its share in the stock market.
Through this process of disinvestment, the government reduces its ownership in the concerned company (PSU) by selling its shares. Through this process of disinvestment, the government gets money to spend on other schemes.Also Read: SBI Global Ed Vantage overseas education loan all you need to know
One of the objectives of the disinvestment process in a PSU is better management of that company. In fact, public sector (PSU) companies do not work only keeping in mind the profits, so many times their work does not make much profit.
Disinvestment in a PSU can be done either by selling shares in the hands of a private company or their shares can be issued to the general public for purchase. Many times people take disinvestment to mean privatization of a government company, but it is not so.
There is a difference between privatization and disinvestment. If a PSU is being privatized, then the government sells more than 51% of its stake in it to the private sector. In the process of disinvestment or disinvestment, the government sells some of its share, but its ownership remains in the PSU.
