Privatisation of public sector banks would run counter to the constitutional obligation of the Govt

In the Budget speech last year, the Finance Minister mentioned that the government would privatise a few PSU banks in due course. There are reports on statements originating from the Ministry that the government would introduce a Bill during the coming monsoon session for enabling it to privatise PSU banks in principle, create provision for outright sale and relax the cap on foreign equity holdings in them.
