Bloomberg TV India, a leading English business news channel, is launching a show called ‘Inside India’s Best PSUs’, which will put the spotlight on the challenges faced by the government-owned corporations, and highlight how the recovery is going to pan out to take the Indian economy in the right direction.
In the new government’s maiden budget, Finance Minister Arun Jaitley raised the disinvestment target for the current fiscal to Rs 58,425 crore. This means that PSUs will be a crucial part of the government’s plan to get the economy back on track. In India, 229 PSUs account for nearly a fourth of the GDP. In this scenario, the most anticipated questions in mind would be ‘what sectors or companies are going to be in focus? And what does this mean for PSUs going ahead?’
Comprehensive programming, led by Mini Menon, Executive Editor, Bloomberg TV India, will give insightful and in-depth coverage on Indian PSUs. Commenting on the launch of the show, Menon said, “PSUs provide leverage to the government to intervene in the economy directly or indirectly to achieve the desired socio-economic objectives and maximise long-term goals. With this show we continue to provide our discerning viewers more than just financial news and analysis. Our objective is to offer our audience a wholesome programming on the various sectors that will take the nation to its next level of growth.”
The show will be a 13-part series comprising hard-hitting, half an hour interviews with leaders of some of India’s biggest PSUs. They will share their insightful views on the challenges faced by the industry, on opportunities for growth and their individual strategies, to beat the downturn of the sector.
Lavneesh Gupta, COO, Bloomberg TV India, said, “Our strategic approach has always been to provide hard-hitting news which helps our viewers to take informed decisions. Taking this into consideration, the show will bring together the most promising leaders from India’s leading PSUs.”
The show will look at top PSUs such as NTPC, SAIL, BPCL, LIC, Indian Oil, UBI, REC, among others.
‘Inside India’s Best PSUs’ will air November 12 onwards, at 8.30 PM, with repeats on Saturday at 8.30 PM and Sunday at 7.00 PM.
