While the union government has invoked the need for greater divestment and detaching itself from 'business', many reiterating the phrase, 'government has no business in business', many public sector undertakings appear to be doing well.

The PSB Bonanza

Case in point: the public-owned banks. According to statistics produced by the government itself, major PSBs have increased their potential and expanded their numbers in terms of profits and their overall performance.

The country's largest lender and perhaps the most easily recognisable bank, the State Bank of India, has made a bumper profit of Rs 61,077 crore in 2023–24, compared to Rs 10,891 crore, nearly 10 years ago in 2013-14.

Even at the equity markets, the largest lender in the country has performed reasonably well, with a 49.29 per cent  or Rs 279.65 surge in just one year. This has taken the overall value to Rs 847.05 per share.
