Govt revises deputation policy of bureaucrats to PSUs

New Delhi: The government has revised the policy of deputation to Central Public Sector Enterprises, banning bureaucrats from joining unless they are absorbed immediately by the public sector firms, the Lok Sabha was informed today.

“The Government officers are allowed to join posts in CPSEs only on immediate absorption basis. However, deputation is permitted in certain cases like Chief Executives and regional chiefs of CPSEs who require continuous liaison with state governments,” Minister for Heavy Industries and Public Enterprises Sontosh Mohan Dev said in a written reply.

Dev said the posts of Chief Vigilance Officers and Chief Security Officers were also exempted from the rule of immediate absorption subject to certain conditions such as non-availability of suitable persons.

Replying to another question, he said the government has so far approved revival plans of 17 Central PSUs based on the recommendations of Board for Reconstruction of Public Sector Enterprises. These companies, which include Hindustan Salts, National Textile Corporation, HMT Bearings, Cement Corporation of India, Heavy Engineering Corporation and Central Inland Water Transport Corporation, have been given total assistance worth Rs 4,981.68 crore.

The BRPSE has also recommended financial and capital restructuring of Tyre Corporation of India Ltd through the joint venture route by locating a strategic partner who would bring new technology, he said while replying to a question.
