He said that, there was favourable condition for PSU's to raise finance through public issue and that a survey has also been carried out in this regard which revealed that 80 percent of the people were keen to invest in the public issues of these PSUs.

When asked regarding the probable disinvestment of Bharat Heavy Electrical Limited (BHEL), engaged in manufacturing equipment for power generating sector, Yadav remarked, it to be too early to comment regarding the same.

The government was inclined on improving the financial conditions of the PSUs by resorting to tools like disinvestments, public issues and tie ups with private concern. Yadav also guaranteed to extend all possible assistance to the local administration for restarting the closed textile mills.
