Policies and Programmes for Fertilizer Production and Use

The global fertilizer production situation and demand for fertilizers in the context of the rise in energy and gas prices, Covid 19 pandemic, and the ongoing Ukraine war are in urgent need of a critical evaluation of the policies and programmes under implementation for fertilizer production and use from the side of the policymakers, farmers’ leaders and scientists in India.

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. DIPAM is also conducting road shows in the USA to sell IDBI Bank.
In this connection, we wish to caution the government about the legal and other far-reaching implications of privatising any PSU bank.
