Privatisation of PSUs Surely a boon for everyone, but a bane for the lower and middle class as well.

It's like get a subscription to watch ad-free. But, when things are in the government's control, watch it for no to little charge. So, ownership transfer is not an answer. Need to strike a balance between service quality, reach, and cost.

Hello everyone.

I am in favour of the privatization of the public sector because it hinders the growth of the sector. Most of the public sector does not able to work due to political interference it reduces the output from the sector which cause to hinder the national growth and GDP of the country. It should be free from political interference and help in increasing the GDP of the country and due to this, it help in generating more and more employment for the people. For example, the condition of government school is degrading day by day it is just a medium of getting a degree without knowledge while the condition of private school is far and far better than government school and it imparts knowledge to the students.

Thank you.

In my point of view,

Public sector should not be privatized because we all know that a private company first motive is to want more money. They can't do anything for the welfare of the people. I know they do their best services but their cost is too high. So, the poor and middle class can't afford this. But in another hand, the public sector first motive is to getting service for all class people in the same rate. And we know that if you get a job in the public sector. You got security to your job but in private sector yo get a job there was no security. If you didn't do the work in perfectly manner they will restrict you. But in the public sector, you have security. In the private sector no timing fix for the employee but in PSU you get a no. Of working hour. In the private sector, you don't get any allowance but in PSU you get these facilities. In the private sector, you don't get any pension facilities but in PSU you get these facilities.

Hello, everyone.

My name is Lakshay Tomar and I am from Meerut, UP.

Firstly I tell what is privatization so it means selling more than 50% of the PSU stock and givinģ up ownership to private companies.

And according to me, it is an issue which has many merits and demerits.

If I talk about some merits of privatization that.

It increases the quality of service, they completed work in time, improve the economy of our country, and also reduces corruption, disciplined way of work so these are some merits of privatization.

Now if I talk about some demerits of privatization that in the private sector there is no safety of a job, they dismissed at any time, and it is not a great option in a country like India where prices is very important factor private companies may increase the price at any point in time. And the monopoly of private companies is the main demerits of privatization.

So according to me, the conclusion is that partial privatization of the public sector is the need of the hour.

I have some points:

1) Privatizing PSU is ok only by Improving strong regulatory body like RBI, SEBI, IRDA etc.

2) Proper Labor Security should be provided and it should have proper vigilance from labour department.

3) it Is also right that when we have regulatory authorities like RBI, SEBI then we no need the government to do business.

As privatization means, giving decisions makes control to the private player instead of a government body. The country like India the main concern of working people is job safety that is going to be a secondary point for private owners their sole purpose is production at any cost.

Psu's are the profit-making companies so instead of privatization government should focus on improving the working condition as well as providing better resources to work efficiently.

Most of the government companies run their social programme for the welfare of nearby underprivileged society, in case of the private sector they did not care much.

PSU controls some of the important supply of resources like oil, power, steel etc. That should be controlled better by the government keeping in mind the last person of every society.

The government can easily collaborate with foreign technologies and working culture as a gesture of their good relation but in case of the private sector, they had to pay some price which will further be compensated by our middle-class population in terms of price.

During the national crisis time like floods, earthquake etc. PSU come with their helping hand to serve nation.

Hey guys,

So lets just briefly talk about the difference between privatization and disinvestment.

Disinvestment means selling off shares from companies, retaining more than 50% of the stock with oneself.

Privatization means selling more than 50% of the PSU's stock and giving up ownership to private companies.

The privatization of PSU is not a great option in a country like India where Price is a very important factor to determine the demand. Private companies may increase the price at any point in time if they want to earn a good surplus or to set off the loss incurred. No regulations can be imposed regarding pricing. No proper transparency will be maintained. Consumer exploitation will be easy.

Core industries should not be privatized by the government, at least.

Partial privatization of the public sector is the need of the hour.

With the increasing corruption and vanishing transparency, the private sector needs to be brought back to pious working. The entire focus of the private sectors is concentrated at profit. Because of this orientations, it is known to overlook the needs of its employees thus exploiting them. There is lack of insurance of health and assurity of increment. There is a constant fear of being wiped out during downsizing in this sector. Thus making it unfavorable to completely privatize the public sector.

There is no denial in the presence of flaws in the public sector as well but their idea of caring for those it is comprised of is what makes it the choice of the majority. It only needs to be disciplined which can be done by partial privatization as it is known the private sector is best at monitoring its working efficiently without any compromise.

Public sector should not be Privatized.

The public sector is the government industries which instead of making money from the innocent people, it tries to serves for them voluntarily while many of the private industries main concern is making a profit. For this, they may exploit their workers or their product consumers. By Privatization so many people losses their jobs and also their dues salary remain under uncertainty which makes their lives miserable.

Instead of privatizing industries, if government Of India take control of a public sector like DRDO, ISRO then there will be no such problems will arise. It shows the govt of India has the best technologies at a reasonable cost which private one do not have.

So, govt have to make strict rules and regulations also for their sectors and make everyone to follow the same and hiring the capable ones.

Why today Reliance Mukesh Ambani, kingfisher Vijay Mallya, Rajesh Exports etc. Became billionaires in a country where many people lack basic resources and die of hunger daily?

Privatization is a concept of exploiting middle class and poor people of India. They will suck the blood of the innocent like leeches. They are paid minimum wages and will be thrown out if they fail to perform at their later stages of life without providing any compensation.

From outside, people may feel like the private sector making profits. But it is at the cost of exploiting the innocent. Many people prefer to work in private sectors if they fail to get a job in PSU/Govt sector.

How are the working conditions of Reliance Oil Refineries or Jamshedpur Tata Steel plant or any private mining areas when compared to the government sector? No one cares about the worker even if he dies.

Unfortunately, The culture in PSUs is also getting degraded day by day. Public sectors reduced the recruitment of permanent workers. They also started exploiting the contract workers by giving fewer wages without any increments.

In a democratic country like India, people should realize that natural resources like oil, steel, coal etc are the assets of every individual in this nation. Ideally, the profits accrued by private PSU's should be distributed to the public in the form of dividends.

I would request the government not to privatize any PSU further. Rather try to adopt techniques to improve the working conditions which makes the employee more efficient. Govt should bring transparency and accountability in the systems. Every citizen should feel proud to be a part of a PSU employee.

Well the straight answer would be a big NO.

Public sectors are known for selflessly serving society with no intention of profit generation, whereas it\'s just opposite in private sector.

Most of the public sector companies are loaded by the government for carrying out its social service schemes which eventually becomes the main cause of loss for company, but no problem being a PSU company this is your necessity to do social services, second thing is PSU's gives a sense of job security to their employees which no private organisations could ever give. Most of the private sector companies are fighting neck to neck to grab business as much as he can, with no proper time schedule of their employees. You can't expect job security in the private sector, once you reached your maturity age, you will be thrown out from your position to be replaced by someone younger energetic individual. Instead of Privatization government should look out for increasing efficiency of PSU's, only then we can expect a good future for this nation.

Hi friends,

According to me, the public sector should not be privatised. This is not good for the development of our country.

Let's take an example=suppose that our Indian railway has privatised then in the case of war, we may face problem due to it. As the main moto of private companies is to earn more and more money as possible. Then they may refuse to help the government for transportation of goods, soldiers etc.

If the public sectors are privatised then any person would be unemployed due to the lackness of knowledge or anything. Then this will lead to more criminal activities in our society.

Hello friends, in my opinion, the public sector must be privatized. Private sector are more focused towards their goals and do the things which take them towards their goals. The skills which are required to grow and prosper are all acquired by a private sector. The people are well managed in their roles and they know how to work toward achieving their goals and bringing profit to their company. Companies works based on the profit it earns and the private sector knows it well.

If the public sector are undertaken by the private sectors then the facilities at the public sectors will be improved drastically. The employees of the public sector should learn the skills which are owned by the private sector employees.

The privatisation of the PSU may help to boost the pending work and increase the quality of service.

Now people have to face competitions as like as private cooperates service.

The disciplined way work definitely boost our country progress.

If we will distribute the responsibility to the private sector then our govt has enough time and money to make a public-oriented scheme.

But before these, there must be a govt institution to supervise this privatisation so that. These sectors cannot ignore the public expectation.

Thanks for giving me such an opportunity. According to me, it will create both good and bad impact for a country. Good impact like as we know that private companies remain always concerned with their products and the working of employees. They never let the things go but on the other hand, bad impact is like the public sector are always very concerned with the desire of the public.

Yes, you are right, my friends.

The Public sector should not be privatized because private sector main motive is to earn a profit and public sector main aim I to give services. Public sector gives services in the cheap cost this is good for the poor people. And private sector charge high amount as compared to public sector. But the problem is the public sector workers do not work they came late to offices and do not work with great effort. This is the drawback of public sector. For eg if we had gone to any govt hospital we can see that there are too much dirt lying here and there. But if we went to to private sector there hospital are too much clean. Every thing is done in systematic manner. But in public sector places nothing is done in systematic manner. I should suggest that we should not privatized but we can outsourced to the priviate sector and the govt should kept an eye on the private sector. This should be done.

No, Definitely not.

Talking about the current scenario this question is arising due to the non-productive nature of these organizations mainly in India. As compared to private sectors they are not making such profits, though they are not so productive as private sectors due to the control of government they are idirectly answerable to us and their service rate is low as compared to private sectors, example of this is medical institution education sector but we have seen that if a private organization comes in the place of public sector they are not answerable to people in service, their service charges are high and money goes to the pocket of owner only where as in public sector this money goes to government which uses it for us. So instead of privatization, we need to improve the condition of public sectors by strict laws and regulation and modern planning techniques.

Hello friends.

In my opinion, industries should be nationalised in India. As you know, our government is engaged in the task of improving the national economy. This is possible only by the planned development of various industries and services so that each complements the other.

Therefore it becomes necessary for the government to control the channels of investment. It is for this reason that during the last few decades, the government of India has established a number of industrial undertakings like the steel plants and other heavy industries. The alternative to a planned economy is the domination of the financial sector by a handful of rich houses in the country. I am sure we all are aware of the evils of capitalism, we know how vested interests can manipulate the markets and prices. In this way, it twists the arms of the popularly elected Governments and thus prevents them from taking measures designed to uplift the masses. If the government is to be responsible to the people for their welfare, then the government has to control the levers of financial power. This is possible only if controls the larger industries. Hence, I convinced that investment in the public sector is a very sound step and we should not be discouraged by the initial setbacks. It is true that the initial cost of these ventures has been high and they have presented peculiar problems but they are bound to become a source of revenue and grand national assets in the years to come.

It is better to privatised all the government sector unions. Because almost all the company is running in losses. Proper administration is not there in all those companies.

If it is privatised all company will run on profit, the debts of our country will be reduced and India would become a developed country.

There are two things to be considered at most.

1. If we privatise all the PSU, then definitely private sectors won't care about the poor people. They will become free to operate on their own.

2. If we didn't privatise PSU, the progress would remain stagnant. This is because of the fact that government officials do not work that seriously and progressively as private officials do.

So we need to find an intermediate solution and it could be like privatisation of some public undertakings. And with that, we can expect from both the sectors to produce the tangible result and work at their level best in every manner.

I think public sector should not be privatised because,

1. If any of public sector comes under private organisation, they will think of their own good and profit will not be used for social upliftment or development.

2. The working condition of employees in private organisations is not good. They work for 10-12 hours for lesser money.

3. Actually, people working in public sector should change their way of doing work. They should be well dedicated and there should be proper administration & management in public sector. In this way, you all would agree, the public sector will be far better in each way.

Our country is at developing stage. When we talk of privatisation, it not merely includes banks. The public sector cannot alone cater all the need and wants of a large number of consumer, in such a case they have to change to privatisation. For example, telecommunications. Moreover, privatisation and globalisation improve the standard of living. But at the same time, it is not advisable that all public sector should be privatised.

14 banks were nationalised in 1969. Thereafter 6 more in 1980. Why?

Because they were mostly concerned for the profit motive. They established their branches in urban areas where profit margin was more. Did any bank think for social welfare or upliftment. The answer is no.

So banks were nationalised to cater the needs of rural as well as poor people.

Now if again banks or any other public sector are privatised it means you are taking your hands out from helping rural people. You are no more concerned about social upliftment. So better options are thoughts for alternate ways to earn a profit by reducing the non-performing assets. Or public-private partnership. So that you can join hands with rural people as well as urban for the profit motive.

Please concentrate on public benefit.

In a country like India where democracy is ruling, each and every sector sud be public. Here all people of India as a family, are doing business, here owner and labour are same, profit from business is used for better education, treatments and development of whole country people. What it means the real democracy. Other wise, after growing sectors of privatisation, capitalisation would rise, exploitation of people would rise, as we can see in SIDCUL Haridwar, circumstances is so created by owners that minimum duty hours are 10-12, then also, very fewer payments,

The Quality of work in public sectors may be controlled by good management and administration, and for that, every Indian should committed to, Good luck to all.

I think it is better to privatise the PSU banks because of below reason.

1. All PSU bank are loss making and govt is continuously throwing the good money after bad money. In long term, this model is not sustainable.

2. It is not govt duty to run PSU bank. 30 years ago things were different. Now in rural place, we can see private banks.

3. PSU employee is not doing their duty seriously. Banks NPA are increasing and it is wastage of public money which can be deployed somewhere else for the better purpose.

We should not be blind to the global economy and to the typical Indian mentality of salaried employees. The Bank, the state and the economy shall grow only when it is privatized, else not. Glaring example is UTI Bank being now converted to Axis Bank. Why are people and government talking about privatization of PSU/govt? Undertakings and not the vice versa? Do you see the vice versa in Global Economy?
The answer is - NO.

Axis Bank today is nowhere comparable to erstwhile UTI Bank or even any Government banks of today. People and govt. Knows --- YOU CANT PREVENT PRIVATISATION, if you are actually thinking of the benefit of the nation. If you are ready to think selfishly about few thousands of govt. Employees at the cost of the nation, then the matter is otherwise. THERE CAN BE NO DEBATE. You can not debate to stifle the economy. Privatisation is sure to happen.

I think the PSUs should be run on Public Private partnership Basis i.e.(PPP). Since we have entered in liberal economy by 1991, there is a strong need of quality services provided by the Enterprises. But unfortunately sometimes fully public owned firms can't do that due to their poor strategy and workability and hence govt incurs loss. So the solution that I think is PPP, by which the investment and administration policies would be handled by private body and Govt would play a monitoring role. By this, the job security of the employees would also be ensured.

My dear friends,

In my point of view, the public sector should be privatized, because of not to be the job security, but to be like the 4s & 5s of the TPM rule. We should apply this by hook or cruck. We know government sector has a big platform for career building with finance and job satisfaction. But one thing should be remembered that privatization has its own potential to recover with a planned culture of motivation, communication, self-development, innovation, creativity &also various personal development by conducting various training programs as HR activity.

In my point of view, public sector banks should not be fully privatised because public sector banks are more concern on social obligations and less concern on making profit in contrary to this private banks work for only profit that's why private players are showing less interest in opening bank in rural (unbanked) areas and if we privatise all the banks we will be denied part of population from accessing banking facilities. Govt may loose control on their functioning too.

Public sector should not be fully privatized.

Disinvestment means moving towards privatisation. But India is developing country and have model of mixed economy. In other words, disinvestment means lack of control on that particular product or services which we are using day by day. There must be a balance on both. Whenever there is a presence of government in any sector, the rates are controlled in better way. Private parties are working for profit and they set their goals which are mainly profit oriented, the unit of TATA's are exceptional in this matter. Promoting privatisation by sale of profit-making PSU's shows a short term target of government to generate money which is further used for budget deficit, but it may loose control on rates, which further increase inflation. It is more effective when there is proper balance between private sector and government sector. Nice playfield must be required for growth and development of developing countries like India.

In my point of view, this has two sides. In public sectors people thinks that they are only hired for this post to come in the office and take money. They do not give importance to how much they did part of the job and they are less responsible for their job or anything.

But in private sectors, people are very much concern what they are doing and instead of this they are getting a good amount so they are very much sincere about their work.

In other hands, public sectors are for those people who are unable to pay a good amount to get any thing. They all have no capability to meet this. In our India, the numbers of this type of people are greater than others.

So I think public not to be privatized.

I have two points of views towards the privatization of banks. One is if we privatise the banks it is a possibility that they can't make an enough faith among the people who are living in rural areas and especially in illiterate peoples because they have a presumption that private banks are not their governments banks and it is also possible that private banks first go for their own profit after they think about public services. In another hand, if we privatize the banks it is also good for Indian banking system. We all know that public sector banks are too much loss-making in India and we also know that to have a member of global banking fraternity banks should have followed the basel-3 norms. According to these norms, banks need a defined capital requirement and nowadays it seems difficult to maintain this because of so many NPA's and other adverse consequences in banking. So I think it is the need of the hour to privatize the public sector banks.

According to my opinion in a country like India where there is so much of corruption due to which we are unable to grow at a fast pace, there is a need of digitization of both public and private sectors so that everything is available only and there should be no chance of exploitation as transparency is a must for each and everything. Those sectors where the government is unable to perform well should collaborate with private sectors to come up with the best solution or give a chance to individuals to show their capabilities.

So motive should be to develop India and improve the welfare of the people whether done by the public, private or both. Believe in make in India and make for India.

The statement leads to a thinking that a public sector which is owned by the government body be privatized, which must never really happen if the economy and stability of a country be sustained. Instead, as everywhere, private players can chip into the business. This is what is happening in sectors that make a balanced, stabilized and profitable output. As far as banks are concerned, a public sector bank is and must be with a sole aim of servicing and helping the citizens of the country economically, profit being the second motto. But this is not the case with private banks whose motto is to make as much profit from the economy.

Recently there is a lot of discussion going on about privatizing railways. This must not be done at any cost just like how the government did for airways because the majority class of people traveling in railways has to be taken into consideration. Indian Railways is supposed to be the largest transporter across long distances for the middle and poor class. The advantage of bringing private competitors into the field is mostly to improve the quality of business with reduced rates. But as far as railways are concerned, bringing a third party only increases the burden on the people who use the service.

I encourage private parties playing on the field but not at the cost of handing over a government-owned system to a private machinery.

It makes me feel bad about converting public to private sectors. Not only in banks all other fields also facing these problems like schools, colleges, and hospitals etc. What have we achieved in making private sectors? We have to pay more money than the required for getting customer friendly environment. We have got a lot of talented people in Govt sectors but they are not properly used. It's the fault of management and government has to take necessary actions on those who don't do their duty properly. It makes no sense in just making everything Private from Public for not Managing the Resources properly and showing the loss percentage. If the Management is good and takes the responsibility all the problems will be solved.

I think privatization should take place. The staffs in the pubic sectors are enjoying so many privileges and living a leisure life. Everybody knows the truth, there is no denial. Of course, it happens in all the government offices, but the way people are being treated by the pubic sector bank staffs are really pathetic particularly if they are illiterate. Even I have suffered a lot with the public sector banks. They will look at us like as we are worms. They will show their faces if we write a challan with some mistakes. There are some exceptions I agree, but 75 to 80% of the bank staffs are only like this. Everyone knows that. But it's not the case in private sector banks. They are very customer friendly and provides us their maximum help to complete our work. Yes, its true, privatization would impose so much pressure on the public sector bank staffs, but from the point of view of customers it's good. They will at least learn to treat people with some dignity. It's to my opinion through my experience and it's not my intention to hurt the bank employees.

I am not in a favor of privatization of banks, If we privatized our banks then the same condition will come up that bank will not go to unprofitable area (rural areas) and then our whole banking history shows that how we merged one banks with other to connect rural areas with bank, no private sector will bear loss by going to rural area where is less business, and if this happen what will happen to our govt so-called efforts to Financial inclusion, it will be irony that on one side govt is pushing financial inclusion and on other side giving chances to private player to refuse it and we can assume it from the recent payment banks where many private sector bidders for payment banks turned down their proposal to open a payment banks citing a reason it's highly competitive and terms are non-profitable.

Already banking sector is facing issue of NPA and if we privatize our public sector banks then no bank will bear additional cost of opening a branch in rural sector where is no or less business for them, and its also seems not a good option if we see our past many efforts were done by past governments nationalized the banks by buying majority of stakes and in again 1991 economic reforms and then in again 2004 they owned IDBI shares made it one of the public sector bank now again selling stakes of IDBI and again making it private make no sense as the question comes how many times we will privatize and publicize the banks again and again if it was the correct option then condition of bank that today wouldn't be that much vulnerable it means answer lies somewhere else we need to find that answer and for the NPA's problem we need to strengthen our laws that punish every defaulter so that no one can dare to be willful defaulter.

And if we are talking about public sector. First of all, I told you as a knowledge that public sector employees are corrupt. And we cannot believe on them.

You know what friends private sector is the cheapest but their facilities are very low and qualities are low and there are many examples as like if we are talking about schools. In the government school, their students always play and runs here and there. When teachers are into the classroom than students do something and the teacher always sleeps. There are not clearly. And if we are talking about private schools their teachers are punctual of timing. Students read properly. There are many extracurricular activities. As like game, dancing, swimming, swinging, singing or many things. So all of these students can choose their aims also. So I think private sector should be privatized.

It should not be privatized because privatization would give ultimate sole power to the managing Head, and this would pressurize the employees too much extent.

In privatisation, authority comes into play. And moreover employees due to even their minor mistakes get might be sacked at the authority of Boss. And everybody might be aware of the motto:"Boss is always right", this comes into play. And to keep up your job you have to be loyal to your boss and are bound to take risky projects to show your expertise. And in doing so, sometimes you might end up losing your job.

The discussion regarding privatisation of public sector is easy but very subjective complex issue why there is need for privations of public sector. It does not mean that by mere privatisation of public sector will create a miracle in terms of high turnover,high productivity, good customer satisfaction etc. However, the public sector will give a good result if following measures will be done:

1. The procedure matters in making decision for critical issues like private sector should be practical rather than on various complex formalities.

2. The work distribution among staff working in public sector should be balanced distribution according to their designation, qualifications, efficiency, salary, power etc.

3. Every concerned official should be held responsible/accountable for his performance.

4. The good policy/procedure of private sector if considers fit to any public sectors, then this should be followed, which will give good results.

So it can be concluded, if above points will be considered then there will be no need to privatise of public sector. But private sector will give example of public sector in good performance.
