performance?Nandini GuptaJournal of Finance2005) finds that both the levels and the growth rates of profitabilitylabour productivityand investment spending improved significantly following partial privatisation Gupta found that the decrease in government ownership increased salesprofitsand the average product of labour and returns to labour In additioninvestment spending on research and development and expenditures on fixed assets rose significantly following an increase in the private share of a firms equity This evidence gives us hope that going beyond resource raising for the governmentthe Indian economy will gain through better utilisation of the labour and capital in the PSUswhen compared with the pre-listing state The listing of unlisted PSUs seems to create market pressure on the management The companys stock price becomes an instrument through which the market gives daily feedback on the performance of the company If a disinvestment transaction is structured so that employees get some sharesthen it creates a new incentive structure Compensation structures in the public sector are notorious for giving employees no incentive to cater to the interests of the firm Howeverif even some employees have shares in the firm post-listingthen their wealth maximisation makes them interested in the affairs of the firm While this evidence for the early listings of the 1991-2000 period is optimisticthere is a role of cautiongiven the weaker state of the remaining PSUs Many PSUs are all but dead as businesses; all that is there by way of value is assets such as real estate Listing might not improve their performance; what is really required is true privatisation The sale of assets of PSUs is going to be as controversial as the privatisation undertaken by Arun Shourie under the NDA government It could come under similar attack as the possibility of corruption can be extremely large Until governance structures and transparency in the functioning of the government in India are far better than those which exist todaythe best option may be to leave some of these difficult decisions alone Finallythe ministry of finance has suggested that all listed companies should have a minimum 25 per cent of shares held by the broad public While many PSUs mayat firsthave only 10 per cent of the shares sold off to the publicthis is the right stepping stone to immediately undertake Within a few monthsthe market will have got a good sense of the price of these companies Once the stock is seasoned in this fashionit will be easy to follow through with the sale of another 15 per cent of sharesso as to get to the 25 per cent requirement which is to be applied to all listed companies The writer is professorNational Institute of Public Finance and PolicyNew

of waiting for permissions and go-aheads from various government departments the Kalina Forensic Science Laboratory (FSL) on Thursday managed to finally open its forensic training centre that was constructed in 2007 on the campus The formal inauguration was conducted by outgoing DG Meeran Borwankar Sources said it was only after hectic parleying between FSL officials and government departments concerned that the permission to inaugurate the two-storey structure finally came The training centre was envisaged as a space where judges policemen prosecutors and lawyers could be trained in how forensics apply to law Share This Article Related Article Rukmini Krishnamoorthy Maharashtra FSL chief between 2002 and 2008 said as part of a committee on “Reform of criminal justice system” she had highlighted that it was necessary all the arms of the justice system co-ordinate with one another “Hence there was a proposal for setting up of the training centre in 2004 where all arms of the law could meet and be trained in forensics While the construction was over in 2007 the Public Works Department (PWD) did not give us an NOC citing some technical issues Until I retired in 2008 we could not inaugurate it” Krishnamoorthy told The Indian Express An official said for years after that they kept writing letters to the PWD and to the Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC) but permissions remained pending As late as 2014 several officials from the PWD with whom the FSL had been co-ordinating with were suspended by the government on alleged corruption charges “The process then had to be started again” said an official He added “When we contacted the civic body for getting the Occupation Certificate (OC) for the training centre they told us to give the setback area from our compound in Kalina which they need for the road widening process They told us that once that was done they would give the OC” Unhappy the top brass of the FSL led by Borwankar in late 2015 co-ordinated with the government on the delays They discovered that since it was a government building the agency actually did not require an OC for the training centre and could start functioning said an official Accordingly the FSL approached the PWD again which completed the process of wiring and other minor issues following which in April the FSL staff started using the structure informally It was finally inaugurated on Thursday by Borwankar who is now headed to Delhi where she will take charge as DG Bureau of Police Research and Development BB Daundkar joint director FSL said they would soon be coming out with a curriculum about how the training is to be imparted to judges and policemen “While we had informally started using the training centre last month now that it has been inaugurated it will be helpful in co-ordinating with other agencies” said Daundkar “I am happy that I could complete this task during my tenure here” Borwankar told The Indian Express [email protected] For all the latest
