As my point of view, a semi government PSU sectors are more beneficial rather than fully privatization. Except some defense, research PSU. Due to this type project the small attention of our government will provide on private sector activities and problem of jobs and other issue not create.

Hello everyone !

Privatization as it denotes is something which makes any organization or sector independent of government interference, liability and control. Given the recent trends where many governmental or public sector undertakings are not performing well or we may say. Are not in pink of their health. Were in the consideration of the government to privatize them. Although its obvious that a sense of competition always leads to the evolution of something better.

Likewise is the work ethics of most of the private organizations. But what I think, is, that losing the control over the organization only looking at its financial aspect, overlooking the organizations employees future over it, is not something worth risking. As it is understood private players has to award their share holders.

So the profit is the priority and they may end up cutting some corners, that is, the jobs and the main motive of public service is never achieved, and creating jobless population is something a developing economy shouldn't look up-to. Cost goes up, as a tax payer one has to pay tax to utilize governmental facilities but for the private facilities its extra besides the regular tax thereby increasing the burden.

Being a non governmental body it is not easy to held them accountable for any wrong doings. Full autonomy is a double edged sword in this context. Might work wonders or might ruin it all. Still many governmental organizations are partly privatized like 75:25 government to private or 51:49 and more but yes the government always has the upper hand in it so it alienates the apprehensions of all those privatization omens and the sense of security is always maintained.

According to me some public sectors should need to be privatized.

Because we all have an experience of the private services and the government services.

For example. If you talk about the healthcare which is a public sector.

And if we compare the conditions of a government hospital and a private hospital, we will definitely get a lots of differences between the services they are providing. etc

I don't know about the other cities but. Whenever I got the chance to read newspaper sometimes I see the news of such type like there is no machine for X-rays. etc. In the biggest government hospital in my city and people are obliged to go to the private clinics for those check ups.

Also I have an experience of doing training in a government industry where I see that according to the time schedule employees need to work for 8 hours but they make their own schedules and work only for 3 hours which is really bad.

That is why I am agreeing with that point, that some public sectors need to be privatized.

The role of public sector in India is enormous. The private sector is born out of public sector. Any leading private sector company when they are starting they have a man from public sector working for them. They recognize the enormous experience the manager has do not write off public sector employees.

There are people who are as talented or may be more talented than private sector. Due to archaic systems the performance levels may be but low.

We should do away with socialist mindsets. PSU's should be sold off before they come to a state when no private player will want to buy them. It will fetch government a hefty 2-4 Cr rupees government has no business doing business. It should rather use that money to expedite all it's development projects.

In my opinion the government Should promote the privatization but it should not be in all sector, because there are some sectors are present that can be affected by the privatization.

E.g. Defense ministry.

So here we can say that the privatization must be done in a limit no.of sector that may provides help to our life not affect to our country secrecy.

The need of time is to change yourself as with the technology. But our Indian PSU's are far away from the latest technology changes. So if both private and public sectors come forward to take it as a challenge the days are not far when we will become independent of more and more imports. This will also led to the control on prices in market and also development of economy.

Why should not we fight against corruption in India? Try to change our government. If public sector privatized then.

1) All our daily needs will become more expensive.

2) The people who are dreaming to work in the public sector their dreams get shattered.

3) The public sector worker will get pf, pensions etc, which will be useful for their future.

Hence, try to change India as a good working government.

Hello my friends.

I read all points mentioned above. Only one thought striking my mind that every one was saying that public sector employees are lazy, corrupt, inefficient so agreed to change public to private sector not thinking of our poor brothers and sister who would not be able to afford private sector services. In present scenario max youth is joining public sector (reason could be job security). So stop blaming others but put your best and change this mindset that government employees are lazy and inefficient.

And at the end I would only say that it is not the matter of private or public, it depends on person to person ethics. If you are a dedicated person towards your work you would work whether you are in public sector or in private sectors.

Hello to everyone.

We all very well aware about Indian economy and I want to add some points we have two model one in communist and second capitalism. One is great example is China another is America.

Recent scenario clarified we are going towards capitalism. Capitalism supports to privatization. If we talk about poor people Chinese have free medical, free education with highest no.of institution and America also provides all these facility.

The problem of India is mixed economy bureaucracy and private can not walk together, so India should have to make a clear vision about policy.

Yes its true that privatisation is a need of hour. But the question is full or partial, according to my point of view partial. As our economy is a mixed economy, only privates and only public can't do well. As private banks were introduced to bring competetion in banking sector. In the same way it can be done with other sectors, keep it under Goverment's control upto a limit and further leave it on market forces, let them compete and exist. It will increase productivity, efficiency, cut costs, increase profits and provide better service.

Hi friends,

In my point of view, both public and private sectors playing an important role in the economic and social development of our country. But their approach differs. Private sectors are mainly concentrated on profit making where as public sectors are service oriented along with profit making.

All that we need to do is to adapt the quality of work, importance to customer service and technology from private sector organisations. In my point of view, privatization of public sector should not be done. If privatization takes place the trust and sense of belongingness of public which public sector has developed all these years will be in doubt.

Hello everyone.

No doubt everyone wants a public sector job but according to my point of view there is a huge difference in public sector and privet sector, in public sector basically they have no fixed target, actually they have fixed target but no one is exactly responsible for failure in incomplete of target, for example a company name as HINDUSTAN PAPER CORPORATION this company is in the loss of almost 7,00,00,000 every year from 2008 to till 2014 but this company is still working so, that means no work pressure on the employes of public sector and also because they have fixed salary, but employes of private sector have a workload because if they do not do their work they may lose there job, so for overcoming on such types of problem I think private sector is far far better than public sector for both self and INDIA development.

It's good to see that many of us think about the our country India. I read the discussion which was left open, and I respect every point discussed over here, but I personally feel that if the Government of India goes for Partial Privatization in the sectors like Indian Railways, our railways system can grow much better then is is right now; full privatization will lead to monopoly of the private players in the market which will lead to hike in prices for the customers, we say 80% of India's GDP comes from the 20% customer then by privatizing we are neglecting those 20% customers or the citizens of India.

Let's go for the partial privatization or for the outsourcing of the product(s). As we all know the IRCTC is already been passed to Google to handle, Jindal steel is providing the best of the railways tracks.

If not Privatization, then we do have another option to increase the rail(s) for the cargo industry rather than increasing in the passenger. I'm not saying no to increase in train for passenger but after some period of time when the Railways get in to some good profits.

Public sectors shouldn't be privatized because the sectors like education, health, transport, Oil & Gas, are serving the poor people a lot. If these sectors are privatized the poor people cannot afford the prices of private sector.

And some say, public sector should be privatized as government is not efficient, and also, is embroiled in corruption in nearly every department, whether it education coalfields, sports, telecommunication, railways etc. And also many of these departments are under heavy losses.

Hello friends,

I think private sectors provide good services with high prices and public sectors provide low services with low prices, here we have two options either improve efficiency.

Of public sector by providing them more job responsibility and put strict control on their work activities in order to that transparency and work efficiency will improved or second option is reduce the prices of private sector by controlling over the prices by government.

In against of-there is more corruption in public sector. And they are not working in a efficient manner. If people will not work in a private company they will thrown out the company. So many of the public sector which are less efficient can be privatised.

Hello Friends,

From my points of view, we can't say directly that public sector should be privatized or not. The reason is if you compared it from private on the basis of money, public sector gives services on low prices and it is taken by all the citizen of India. But on the basis of facility, quality private sector comes upon public sector.

Hello Friends,

As per the view of all my friends stated above, it is true that privatization of public sectors will lead in high prices for all things and ultimately middle class (common man) has to repay for it heavily.

As per my view, instead of making public sectors totally private, we should adopt the methodology of private sector that in public places. For eg: In Govt. hospitals there should be a keen watch on activities of the workers and doctors. Timelines and targets should be set for everyone. Regular feedbacks from patients should be taken. In this case it might be possible that sometimes public may also misuse the liberation. At that time the case should be verified and necessary actions must be taken.

The very basic thing of public sector that needs to be changed is the way they interact with the common man. If politeness is taught to every public sector employee most of the work will be simplified. Rudeness, irate, arrogance is the main symbol of public places, due to which most of the people prefer private hospitals etc. If this picture is changed, there are good hopes. Similarly, Govt. should start taking hold of private sector, as though they provide good facility, common man is deprived of all the facilities due to money.

India is a developing country. And if Govt. does not take necessary actions for solving basic needs of Indians, poor will remain poor and will have no chance for further development.

Afterall, Govt. of India levy's heavy taxes in all the sectors and thus is liable to provide good facilities as per the money paid by common man.

Equality, politeness, humble-service, co-operativeness are the things that needs to be nurtured for India to grow at faster rate.

According to me, public sectors excluding defense should be privatized with some obligations towards social responsibility imposed on it. Public sector employees having been secured about their job do not get pressure and do not give 100% of their efforts to maximize wealth in most cases. With the intention to earn more giving less effort paves the way of bribery as well as corruption. Now-a-days it took a awful shape in this sector. So this should be put to an end. So finally, public sectors are required to be privatized with some responsibility towards society to secure a better world.

This is just a matter of discussion that which one is better. Public or Private. Should we privatise all public sectors of country like India. We all knows that there are always Pros and cons in each and every sector.

In my opinion we should not to change public into private. Rather think about eradication of existing cons of Public sector. We have to take step to rethink our mindset that we personally like to work in Public sector and want facility from Pvt sectors. This is only because our mind set is like getting a comfortable job. With good salary, working condition and less responsibility is key aim of our life.

Dear friends. Corruption is everywhere private or Public is not a matter of talk that corruption is more in Public sector. We observe that in day to day cases of Corruption is increasing in every sector. We should rather think about changing of our mind set and rather ourself to unite both sectors as a holistic view of PPP (Public private partnership) with all good things together.

According to me, public sector should be privatized. Because we all know that salary of workers in public sectors are fixed. Company's turnover does not affect the salary of individual. They do not get under pressurized. So they don't give 100% efforts. But in private sector job is not secure. Workers have to give 100% efforts because of competition. Thus private sectors grows very well than public sectors.

Hello friends.

I believe both public and private sectors have their own pros and cons for instance red tap-ism, lack of interest and dedication are few against public sector yet there is a brighter side to it like they really do have a very systematic approach (though not functioning at par now) they are more concerned about public welfare (that is the basic underlying principle and the reason behind their nomenclature) unlike private where the basic principle is profit maximization. Public sector even after so many stigmas attached to their very existence caters more public and have highest beneficiaries under their umbrella.

Needless to redundant that private sector have a very dedicated and highly motivated staff, negligible corruption etc. But we must not forget the fact that we live in a nation where majority is combating the battlefield for survival where still people are starving and can not fetch even the basic amenities. So in a nation like this we can not afford to think like an American we have to think like an Indian.

So my friends I believe that rather than debating which is better public or private or should we privatize the public sector (presuming that private sector is better) we really need to think for a sustainable and holistic approach which in my opinion is PPP (public private partnership). PPP should combine the goodness of both and eliminate the cons.

My opinion is that government must bring privatization in public sector. It eradicate monopoly from the market and spread the competition in market and open the door for those who want to start venture. Apart from the all government should focus on those area which private sector is not able to run. India is now became a third largest economy in asia because of privatization brought in 1991.

So I think government should take further step to convert public sector into private sector. Now a day we can see a big stagnation in several PSU's such as railway, gov. Hospital, gov. School etc.

Hi each and everyone,

First of all why the Public sector should not to be privatized?

The absence of private sector in many departments makes the public sector so lazy. The people working in the public sector is as not so informative to the people as the people working in the private sector. The one and only reason for this fact is that mostly the one who works in the private sector is not an permanent one but the one who is in the public sector is so. It is the major reason which makes them more lazy.

The second thing is that the higher officials of the private sectors are more strict than than an public one because there are under the compulsion to finish the work at the fixed time and in the fixed manner. But the higher officials in the public sector due to political reasons and many there are not as strict as in the private sectors.

I have many reasons for why the public sector to be privatized. They are:

1. Private sectors avail the same facility as that of the public sector in the low cost.

2. Private sectors is more customer friendly than the Public sector.

3. Private sector finishes the job more faster than the Public sector.

4. Negligible amount of corruption in the Private sector. But the Public sector is full of corruption.

5. Private sector people fears on the customers. But the customers fears on the public sector.

We can come to the conclusion easily by seeing the following details:.

The public sector is for people but mostly the people is not preferring the public sector. The ticket fare of the Government express bus is higher than the Private Express bus. Though it is not safe the people prefer the Private Bank than the Government Bank because of the worst service of the Banker in the Government Bank. Likewise there are many reasons why public sector to be privatized.

The Private sector is more customer friendly than the Public sector. So the Public sector should be privatized for the best results.

The Private sector can bring Wealth and Prosperity to any of the nation.

Be corruptless.

Work for the nation.

Jai Hind.

Hi to all!

From my point of view rather to get the public converted to private the environment and the way of working should be like private. Today the people who are employed in the public sector have become lethargic as they take their duty for granted. Whereas, in the public sector there is nothing like discipline and creativity. So as per my opinion there should be strictness and target oriented as that in the private sector then only the economic growth will increase.

Further, people think that being in public sector there is no one who can kick them out from their job that is why they do whatever they want. Today the private sector is giving fruitful results just because the employees are always in fear of losing their job so for their own sake they try harder and harder to get established in that company.

So in conclusion, rather than privatization there is a need for proper and strict administration and the promotion should be on the basis of employee achievement and veterans rather than the number of year.

Hello Friends,

Our topic of discussion is public sectors be privatized. In my opinion it should not be done. I don't believe that there is no corruption in private sectors and 'Private means more quality'. As we all know both has +ves and -ves. What should be done is try to implement the positives of private sector in public.

In private sector employment is given on basis of talent and salary is paid on the work done. That policy should be acquired in public sector too. Employees of public sector may be talented, but once they gain a job in public sector, they have a feel that they are safe, and will be employed till 58/60 years regardless of their work. That attitude should be changed by implementing an organisation to keenly monitor their activities and action should be taken against such employees. This will solve the issue of delay and less quality in public sectors.

Reason am saying privatization should not be done is, more than 50% of Indian population is still living below poverty line. Privatization will make life uneasy for them, as there is chance for increase in cost of goods n services. Also its a false belief that corruption doesn't prevail in private sectors. Though it prevails in public sec too, at least we have the right to question it. But in Private sec, we will be given no choice, other than keep mum.

HELLO Friends I want to share my views with you. During independence all the powers are in government hands there are no such thing like private sectors even its quite difficult to open up a new private organization due to strict legal measures. But when public sectors privatized there was drastic change occurred in progress, development, innovation, competition, quality of products.

Like if we take an example of Indian banks before privatization, employees like women working there seem to be doing their own work like knitting etc. They were less interested in doing their work properly but after privatization huge change occurs they seem to be focussed in their job because of less security and competition. So to make our nation a developed from developing this could be a one method but also completely making all the public sectors privatized would also deviate from its goal. Because they more involved in money making processes.

And now some public sectors are doing well but in some sectors there is a need of change.

Hello friends,

In my point of view public sectors should be privatised. Because,

1. The work efficiency of employees of private sector is much more high than that of public sector organisations.

2. Government Is trying to minimize the corruption. But it is just for a shouting. Practically too much corruption is there in public sector. But in private sector the organization is very much conscious about corruption. So it will be minimized.

3. The private organization are more eager to implement the advance technologies and trying to increase product value larger.

4. The employee who is loyal and efficient gets more scopes and rewards in private sector.

5. Private sector creates the environment such that the employ learning capacity improves, laziness of employ decreases. So private sector employ become more efficient than public sector. In public sector the good employs learn laziness and become less efficient.

6. Package of employee of skilled persons are too much in private sector.

7. Moreover for the same investment private sector earns more profit.

Hello friends, I would like to suggest my points. I appreciate all the points mentioned.


The government's main goal is to satisfy it's citizens in a variety of different ways: better transportation, better national security, better education, as well as allowing for citizens to keep more of their well-earned money. With that said, sometimes the only way to satisfy all these different societal values is to privatize.


Private-means more effort and sincerity, punctuality, money based on work done. It doesn't provide life security. Good quality at relatively cheaper price. Manufacturing of goods and services will be on time.


I think public and private sectors are necessary for India because improving in economics. Improves the GDP.

When we speak of bringing privatization, we expect the notion to bring along efficiency, completion of a task within scheduled dead line, establishment of liabilities on those who are expected to deliver services, better service experience for those who avail it and all these into an already malfunctioned govt system that is alleged of corruption, delayed performance and in-efficiency.

But privatization also brings along profit driven approach that somehow compensates the very ideology of delivering services to public at minimum cost.

I appreciate all the points mentioned.

Friends, we see aesthetic buildings constructed around us at the same time we are moving on the roads with potholes and the interesting point is that both are constructed by private companies.

Private sector not only constitutes of companies like TATA, Infosys, L&T etc but their are companies like satyam too.

Since, we are working under public sector, we are finding flaws in it but, when we start working under private sector we will come to know its flaws and we won't be able to even complain about it.

So, for a better society it is necessary to take a stand against the flaws of public sector and work upon it.

In my point of view both private sector and public sector should work parallel.

I always heard about public sector that when we go for any service the officers denied to do it and ask for bribe. If you don't pay them they ask to next day, again next day or ask different types of documents even unnecessary documents.

So, my suggestion is that people should aware for all service those are provided by public sector. Whats documents are needed, application fee, how long it will take to complete and finally what is process. If any officer denied to serve you take legal action against him and show them whats are public (peoples) rights.

In private sector all things are pre-compromised they serve according what price you have paid them but here also you need to aware about current market price of particular service.

Never compromise with bad service irrespective of public or private sector, always take legal action against them. Be aware for everything and wipe-out corruption from country.

Hello friends,

After going through the discussion most of the people quoted that privatization is an necessary evil because in privatization decision are spontaneous but one must must think is the decision taken by the private management will be in favor of the public. Second point to be noted is services offered by will be wider extent ? thirdly regarding corruption as it is like virus it can be observed in wide section of working sectors. We can't give assurance that only private sector will make things possible for us but the fact is the private management creates sensation but not services which cannot be afford wide section of people.

Instead of privatization government needed to take certain steps or should adopt certain guide lines which satisfies public.

Hello, friends!

From my point of view when I heard public and private, thoughts that come in my mind are:

1) Public-means 'less effort and sincerity, careless, not punctuality, more money and corruption (black money).

2) Private-means 'more effort and sincerity, punctuality, money based on work done.

Only pros of public sector is that minority (i.e. SC/ST).

In private sector only talented persons will get the job.

Privatization is incomplete solution until its is controlled by an third trusted party.

Hey everybody,

Hmmm. All of you guys are hovering around the points like.

Speed, and.


In privatization, and Corruption in public sector.

As far as the speed and quality is concerned, yes, private sector wins, but the virus of corruption exists therein as well, it is behind the curtain just because common janta of India is not au fait with the private world. And most important, there is no check on the private system so there would be tremendous hike in charges that you people are charged now. In competition there would be reduction in cost though, however we can't be so sure of that.

Now coming to public sector,

We need a stern system to look after the employees. No doubt that most of the population of India is below poverty line and subsidies given to them by public sector relieves their wounds.

Things like corruption, speed can be brought in a day in public system. Why change the window when changing curtains is more than enough.

The best example to illustrate here is AAP's work in Delhi.

While I paid my elec. Bill in advance & I have to pay only for 40 units, I went to electricity office several times but they people always denied to process my request, and they asked me to give him 4000 bugs to make them correct.

After roaming 4 months they did not update my correct bill & disconnect my connection. I spend 2 weeks without electricity in my home. And on every day I went to office but they always said bring this & bring that. Means I can not do anything and ultimately I have to spend 2000 bucks to restore my connection. So my opinion is PUBLIC sector should be PRIVATE. That is more helpful for common man (MANGO PEOPLE).

When we are discussing about privatisation it is important to understand its benefits and drawback, benefits like efficiency and control over corruption and drawbacks like "risk to poor people" and after analyzing both if benefits are overdoing to drawback, and if there are solution for drawback then we should go for privatisation.

Let's take example of aviation industry after privatisation because of cut throat competition and other factor all of them went into a loss but if we could put some governing body over them who will govern them partly then this issues can be solved and we can relish benefits of privatization without getting affected by its drawbacks.

Hello one and all.

The proposition given for discussion is "should the public sector be privatized".

All of we know that public sector means the sectors which having more than 50% sharing by government itself whereas in case of private sectors more than 50% sharing by some individual or some individual organisations.

To me public sectors should not be privatized there should be put strong legislation to minimize corruption in these sector.

No.1 - Strong actions should taken against the employees those who do mistakes.

No.2 - A proper agenda should be maintain.

No.3 - Complain facility must be taken into consideration.

If public sectors are privatized government should keep an eye on these sectors to maintain the cost of products because as we know that private sectors are profit oriented so there may be maximum chances increase in cost to increase their profit those may effects on poor or middle class people.

Public sector should be privatized. It is obvious that corruption is showering on people of India because of the drunken public sector, by introducing the schemes which benefit them rather than common people.

It is always true that private sector seek for profits, but it is a single organizations profit. But in public sector every political leader tries to get profit, creating large body to be profited. Hence, controlled private sector is always far better than a public sector.

I support privatization of public banks as privatization will increase competition and due to it, banks will try to focus more on the developing and more they develop, economy will get benefited sideways.

The matter of face some people are telling that poor might be ignored in that race, people we have regulators like RBI present to stop that, they can or rather they have made it mandatory to give or lend some percentage of money to the sectors and people who are in real need of money.

Corruption to the matter of fact will go if we will stop it which is quite a task in a developing nation like ours to stop but slowly and gradually we are improving on that front also.

Employees should get the benefit of government perks even in private sector, something like that should come up to secure there JOBS, so that they can work there minds, heart and soul out for the Employer.

Privatization and public sector both play a important role to grow up the nation but privatization is more effective in India because India is a developing country where corruption rate is very High. Privatization tends to create a competition by the help of competition it will be better for public, it means they will use good services with limit price.

Privatization have following Advantage.

- It pay high tax to government.
- High quality product.
- It provide effective service.

In India corruption rate are really very high especially in Government office so I am always in the favor of privatization specially in India.

Hello All,

In my opinion, public sector should be privatized. I understood the concerns of people saying about the poor people that because private sector is meant for profit it will not concern the general public. But friends, we are ignoring some major points. If they are meant for profit they will also bring revenue to the country, more people will be employed. Think for a instance if a new manufacturing plant is set up, would not that need labour.

We talk about government schools providing education, there are not even chairs and notebooks for students. Take the example of Delhi Metro Rail Corporation, that have the minimum fare of Rs 8, comparing DTC buses charging 5, in 3 Rs we are ignoring the comfort, ease the person has, and it can be afforded by poor people. At last I would like to say, that privatization should be done and it should start as early asap, at least let economy grow rather than these politicians.

Its a long discussion. But there is a very basic question we must answer before we go ahead. -"whether India is ready for complete privatization ". There are certain advantages and disadvantages of both. I would like to point out some of the concerns regarding privatization at this juncture-.

1. A huge part of India is still undeveloped and in spite of Government subsidies and tax benefits private players are not eager to tap those markets. The very structure of Public-private existence is necessary until those areas develop to an optimum level so attract private companies.

2. Regulatory clearance is a major hurdle in India as of now. And no private sector is making any advance in mastering that. 300 coal mines were allotted to private sector since 1993. Only a few of them (around 30) is producing coal today at a capacity which is mere 10% of their total potential. Whatever coal is produced in India today that is from CIL (a PSU) mining fields. And if you people are following news and recent CAG report, you would know, how many big private homes are named in the Coal scam. So, in no way one can buy the theory of "privatization means more productivity and less corruption".

3. Whereas private companies have more access to external capital markets and funds, this factor at the same time creates vulnerability in terms of job security in Indian market. With dollar or euro getting a bit up or down can create lots of job cuts and salary underpayment. You must follow the global economic trend and FDI s & FII s moving in and out of Indian market. So there is a serious concern about "Liability" of private firms at present time.

4. Particularly, in manufacturing sector-with privatization of major equipment manufacturer's and power sector giants- Indian market will fill up with Chinese machines. Chinese manufacturers have certain cost advantage over Indian manufacturers-first -they enjoy substantial government subsidy from their government. The structure of their financing is based on cheap state loans-unlike India where companies are dependent on equity and debt market for investments. Moreover China has a current capacity over-addition and they are looking for emerging countries to export their products. This will kill Indian industries. So in future if china fails to deliver, we no longer will have an industry in our country to look up to.

5. Although health care is grossly under developed in India, privatization of this sector is a big no. I don't need to elaborate much on this, as I am sure many of you are following "obama care" and recent US government Shutdown. With 30% of its population living below poverty line, India can't afford a health care industry modeled on health insurance policies.

These were jut some of my concerns. I can go on and on. But before that, I would like too have your opinion.

Public should be privatized but up to certain limit. Under private control there is no corruption and no time delay in working process while this all are there in public sector. And it may be possible that due to privatization cost may be increased because it is profit oriented sector. And process like compensation in government service like providing job to son of person who died during his job, I am not against the compensation provided but compensation in term of job, this must not be there. If a person who is more qualified for that job, give it to him/her rather than giving like compensation. So losses will be low, more economy, more growth etc.

From my point of view privatization of PSU companies shouldn't be done because development aspect would get buried under profit making aspects. Facilities like medical, education, transport etc would become costlier. No doubt that private companies.

1). Make more profit than government companies.
2). Salaries of worker are high.

But the expenditure is equally high.

Private company provides:

1). No medical facilities.
2). No education facilities.
3). No job security.
4). If your father/son died during job family would get nothing on other hand PSU provides some relieving facilities.

In my opinion, private sectors are well managed and cost effective. Government sectors have applied so many policies but they are not able to execute them properly which not only affects the customer experience but makes it also unprofitable for government too. So privatization can result in very cost effective policies, well management and satisfactory customer experience.

Many have been saying that private sector will emphasize on making more and more profit, and that can be true too. But with transparency and proper co-ordination with government (like subsidies) , services can also be made affordable to poor people.

As the name public sector speaks itself this sector is for benefit of general public whereas private sector is for profit for either an individual or for a group of individuals. Privatizing public sector will result in transforming this sector into a profit making organisation rather than working for the growth of the country. Moreover privatizing is not the only solution to eradicate growing corruption in public sector.

Indeed private sector feels like a blessing in disguise but you need to take into account both the negative and positive aspects.

But still some of the Public sector sections like transport, education etc. Can be privatized but an eye must be kept over them. Its not the public sector we need to change but we need to change the mindsets of the people running these sectors.

As far as I am concerned, I think there is a huge difference between development and the process of making profit. As we know private sectors are chiefly centered on enhancing profit as much as possible whereas the public sectors are more interested in development along with making profit. But it doesn't mean that private sectors have no part in our development. They indeed possess the ability of making our country prosperous.

Actually the way they think about development differs with those public sectors. It is very much evident that corruption has expanded its evil effect everywhere, not even the private sectors can get rid of it. So we shouldn't blame only public sectors, which are politically inclined. So privatization of public sectors cannot solve this problem. I think proper selection of eligible candidates in different posts, making proper agenda of all-round development and being stick to the plan, maintaining public relationships are more important to make public sectors more acceptable.

Hey guys,

I agree with all of your views and I'd like to share my view as well. I seriously suppose the privatization of a public sector.

Basically the public sector and private sector both plays a nominal role in human life. The main theme of public sector deals with helping the people who in need and whereas on the other hand the private sector treats with corruption, inflation, enforcement. But in these days, the public sector will gradually changing the past theme to become a privatization theme. The public sector in now-a-days is not even working legally or seriously to humans. On the other hand, the same thing happens with the private sector too. So, the laws in public sector and the ethics followed by them are drastically decreasing day-by-day. Let me tell you the point of happening this way to humans i.e., corruption in everywhere in every-field. So, even in the public places there is no citizen which can abide this rule. So in my view, this has to be perfectly privatized. Thank you.

Basically there are two aspects. We know government gives tenders to private organization for constructing roads, bridges. But still there are a lot of accidents of breaking bridges in front of us so we can't say that just by privatizing we can overcome this.

Indian rail is an example in front of us. It is being properly run by the government and does not need to be privatized.

The thought 'privatization of public sectors' comes into an idea only because the public sectors are not efficient in doing their works. So I think there is no need of privatization public sector indeed we must improve the efficiency of public sector by implementing stringent laws and always keeping an eye by an unofficial team on the work of each and every individual in public sector, by reducing the corruption we can gradually increase efficiency of the public sectors and by providing required amount of funds and also ensuring that fund is completely utilized to improve its efficiency only.

Also by reducing the reservations and recommendations and only appointing capable persons to the applicable leading posts can govern the public sector to fulfil its colorful dreams. So I think its not necessary to privatize public sector indeed we can implement certain rules and laws ti increase efficiency of the public sector.

In my opinion converting public sector into private sector is a good idea as government itself has disinvestment goal every year and it provides a healthy amount of money to our government which government can utilize it in other development works moreover private sector bring some new talent, new energy into the system as we all know private sector is very vibrant unlike the public sector dullness.

They will bring some good customer relationship management skill which many of the public organisation even don't know.

The greatest advantage is profit, private sector can change our loss earning public organisation into profit earning ones as the employees are driven in such a way that if their performance is good then they will receive promotion and money otherwise they will be penalized as most of the private firms do.

Good evening friends, Thanks to all to provide your own opinion.

I agree with all of you but according to my point of view, it is just like the two parts of a coin, both private & public sector has their own advantages as well as disadvantages.

In privatization, we will get more satisfactory services And this will also help to increase competition. But it will also affect on our economy, it increases inflation. People belonging below to poverty line will get affect very much.

Whereas, if public sector focus on the people belonging below to poverty line then it also attract to slow system of government. Public servants does not work with full dedication and public sector does not provide satisfactory services to public.

So if we will convert public sector into privatization so it will be bad for poor people, so instead of converting it into privatization, we must promote to hybrid topology. We should promote both, with strict rules and regulations.

Thank You.

According to me, public sectors should not be fully privatized. Some sectors like Indian railways, is doing so good and making lot of profit to the government. But some sectors are urgently needed to be privatized in which lot of scams are coming out like power sector, telecom. In order to eradicate corruption these sectors should be privatized, in many public sectors workers do not do their work properly as they do not have any fear to loose a job owing to which many problems are created and remain pending for the years and who have to suffer for all that is public (aam aadmi).

So, government have two options to eradicate these loses and corruption and enhance the profit of sectors are either by making some strict rules in public sector and have a sharp eye on the whole work and procedures or if it unable to do so then those sectors should be privatized.

Thank you.

Hi All,

This is Amit,

Privatization of public sector. Lot depends of which sector we are talking about. Let me clarify few doubts in the primary stage. Can we expect all private hospitals in our cities in our town which do not have an entry for poor people, can we have only private sector telephone companies, can we have private companies have complete control on oil reserves, can we have all transport be provided by private sector and RTC vanishes, can we expect an private sector to take care of our defense. In the same way we can't expect the government to set up an IT industry on its own, we can't expect them to handle all the load of flight transport. My point over here is both are not mutually exclusive. We need to accept the fact that both are here to stay and we cannot make it without one. They do have their importance and we need to deal this issue according to the context.

There are some strategic sectors, which need to be under control of Indian government like oil/gas sector. The subsidy we enjoy will be never provided by a private sector.

Hi Friends, my name is Varun.

I would like to inform you that, there is need of Public sector as well as Private sector. If there is no public sector, then there may be difficulty for middle or lower class family as the price is keep on rising. Further, there is lots of limitation in public sector but it can be improved by appointing one or two person's along with their defined responsibility, which if they do not fulfill then they may be liable. By doing this, I think that it can be improved.

Privatizing public sector is the only thing we are left with no doubt they have more work or more tension and all other things but they are paid a handsome money for that so their is no issue like more work or tension in private work and even if public sector is privatized their will be no corruption.

Along with profit oriented of private sector there is another problem I want to tell that is private sector does not have any mercy for their senior employees i.e. employees will be paid according to their work this tension cannot be handled by many of citizens on the other hand public sectors give LTC, mediclaims, pension and more security to their employees. And to me it is these reasons that people are fond of public sectors. To privatize public sector will built insecurities among people. So my opinion is to make public sector work environment target oriented with benefits to make a better future for the society.

Hello friends,

Myself Barga deori, my opinion is that public sectors should be privatized because the the private sectors deals with every thing smoothly and punctually. Public sectors always delay in outsourcing any product. Moreover the jobs in public sectors are secure, and due to that the employees are free of tension that they do not get debarred from the job. And they think that they have to do their normal duties not for the actual development of Revenue. So the pubic sectors should be privatized so that people in the public sectors have to do work to improve revenue as well as development of the country.

Thanks to all my friends to give me an opportunity to be a part of this group discussion. According to my point of view we should first understand the need the public sector undertakings and private sector undertakings.

In such fields where welfare of population is involved we should not privatize it like railways, banking. Because if all they are privatize then how will poor peoples survive? in other case we should privatize some sectors like retail industry to create competition this will lead to consumer welfare.

It is something like comparing apples with oranges. In fact both have advantages & disadvantages. LPG has brought a revolution today we have choice of about 100 auto car & bike companies & consumer electronics with multiple models for consumers choice. Hundreds of media channels to watch 24x7 however motive of this is profit & not welfare.

For population below poverty line Govt institutions are the only option. Subsidies by govt to agriculture & local bodies is must in rural India as private players gather where source & infrastructure are at ease to them. So finally there has to be better mix of both & even on private sectors Govt should control through regulators & statutory framework.

Hai friends,

According to my opinion there is no need to convert public sector into private. If it happens common people suffers. Public sector is for the welfare of the common people. But some middlemen are corrupting the whole system, so we should not blame the public sector. Government should pass a strict rules and strict office timings etc., I hope it is the best solution. Not only this there should be a change in mindset of Indians all of us think it is our duty.

According to me, privatization of public sector may not be correct idea because only a few private organisations are concerned for the development of the country. But others may work for their personal profits. Proper monitoring may help the government to work effectively.

Hi friends,

From my point of view it is not better idea that public sector should be privatised as though the public sectors are not as efficient as private. Public sector is for the welfare of the common people. If it is privatised common people suffers a lot.

Government employees are as talented as private employees because it is not easy to get a government job but after getting the people are becoming lazy without proper rules. Most of them are corrupting and they are not sincere on their work.

The corrupted people should be punished seriously so that every employee be afraid of corrupting. Not only these the efficiency of the public sector has to be increased by passing strict laws, strict timings etc.

I hope it is the best solution solution for the countrys development.

From my point of view Public sector should be privatized. Reason behind that Quality of products and services provided by private sector compare to Public Sector is far better.

In this one of the main reason public sector people are more corrupt and as they think that because of Government Job their job is secured. Because of that they work lethargically and not pay attention towards giving services better to the people.

Moreover privatization should be done where Indian Country is Lagging behind like Education, Hospitals, Roads and Transportation Sectors Etc.

But it should be all under government Guidance and rules and regulation.

So that Transparency would be maintained.

What the real time need is "Development of the whole nation".

I don't think privatization can be helpful in development of the whole nation. Its already disparity in the wages due to which India is still lagging to development.

Private sectors are just meant for their own benefits. No doubt the work culture there is far much better than Government sectors but what would be its benefit if it can't take the nation as a team.

So I think its only Government Sectors which can prove their best for upliftment of rural as well as urban areas though slowly. But its only "SLOW and Steady who win the race".
