Over the last three months we have worked with each of the Public Sector Undertakings (PSUs) to develop a balance scorecard that provides a comprehensive assessment of short-term and longterm performance. This will be reviewed by the ministry on a monthly basis,” minister of state for aviation Jayant Sinha told ET.

Under the balanced scorecard methodology, an organisation’s performance is monitored against strategic goals on the basis of a few listed criteria.
