Pawan Hans

New Delhi, Oct 13 (PTI) The government today invited bids from private companies, including foreign ones, to buy out its entire 51 per cent stake along with management control in helicopter service operator Pawan Hans Ltd.

The Miniratna PSU is under the administrative control of the civil aviation ministry and the remaining 49 per cent stake is held by oil behemoth ONGC.

In a “global invitation for expression of interest”, the government asked private players to submit the bids by December 8.

“The government proposes to disinvest its entire equity shareholding of 51 per cent in Pawan Hans Ltd by way of strategic disinvestment to investors, along with transfer Of management control,” it said while inviting bids.

While expression of interest (EoI) from bidders was sought for four PSUs yesterday, the same for Pawan Hans was issued today.

Of the lot in question, the government plans to sell its entire stake in Hospital Service Consultancy Corporation (HSCC), Engineering Projects (India) Ltd (EPI) and National Projects Construction Corporation (NPCC) to a similarly-placed CPSE.
