Dun & Bradstreet India Releases 'India's Top PSUs 2017'

Release of the 10th edition of Dun & Bradstreet India’s premier publication on 28th July 2017

Mumbai, 28th July, 2017: Dun & Bradstreet, the world’s leading provider of global business information, knowledge and insights, released the 10th edition of its premier publication ‘India’s Top PSUs 2017’on Friday, 28thJuly, 2017. The importance of the PSU sector to the socio-economic development of the nation is clearly underscored by the fact the total employee strength in central public sector undertakings (CPSEs) stood at nearly 1.2.million (excluding contractual workers) in FY16.

The publication ‘India’s Top PSUs 2017’ is amongst the longest running and most reputed publications in the country that profiles central public sector enterprises (CPSEs) which are a part of the Department of Public Enterprises (DPE) list (operational enterprises as on 31.03.2016); public sector scheduled commercial banks (SCBs) as defined by the Reserve Bank of India (RBI) on 31.03.2016, excluding regional rural banks (RRBs); public sector insurance companies as defined by the Insurance Regulatory and Development Authority of India (IRDAI) and other public sector NBFCs/financial institutions formed by the Act of Indian Parliament.

‘India’s Top PSUs 2017’ continues with the customary approach of profiling central public sector units (CPSUs) and also listing of the State PSUs. The ‘Overview’ section is based primarily on in-depth analysis of the aggregate financial performance of all the CPSUs as well as of those featured in the publication. Views of the industry veterans on opportunities and growth drivers about their respective sectors as well as the future plans have been encapsulated in the ‘Experts’ View’ section.

The 2017 edition of the publication profiles 170 Central PSUs which include 131 companies from the non-financial segment, 21 public sector banks, 8 insurance companies and 10 companies from the FIs/NBFCs segment.                     

Some of the key financial performance highlights of the featured PSUs during FY16 are:-

• The aggregate total income of the 170 profiled CPSEs stood at around Rs. 31 trillion in FY16; showing a decline of nearly 2% as compared to FY15

• In terms of share in aggregate total income, the oil – refining & marketing sector was the largest contributor with a share of 30% in the aggregate total income of the profiled PSUs; followed by the banking sector with a 23% share

• The aggregate net profit of the 170 profiled CPSEs stood at nearly Rs. 946.6 billion, showing a decline of nearly 32% as compared    to FY15
