@rohitguptahpf I don't know what the data says. But I suspect your assumption is a good one.All that said -- I am not opposed to creating new PSUs. | And yes I am aware of the argument I just made : )Imagine you buy stock in companies. You do well with some, and lose money with some. Only buy good ones next time is not quite a strategy.And governments of all stripes have shown that they are not very good pulling the plug on the loss-making units.GOI started many PSUs. Some happened to become winners. No guarantee that if you start again, you will create only winners.I am not unopposed to creating new public sector companies. But this "just replicate winners" argument is @indianreagan @knackofflying TN Ninan roots for replicating "strong public sector entities"
