The Department of Public Enterprises has held consultations with ministries concerned on reforms measures that have been accepted by the Group of Ministers (GoM), headed by Finance Minister P Chidambaram.
"We have already processed the Roongta Committee recommendations (on PSUs reforms) and they should be coming to the Cabinet in a short-time," Minister of Heavy Industries and Public Enterprises Praful Patel told reporters on the sidelines of a CII function.
"I think in September, we should see the Cabinet approving most of the recommendations," he added.
The suggestions are aimed at strengthening performance, transparency and efficiency of the Central Public Sector Enterprises (CPSEs).
The reforms, recommended by a government-panel chaired by former SAIL Chairman S K Roongta, include three-year fixed tenure for PSUs' heads and swift action against PSUs officials indulging in any malafide actions or wrong doings.
At present, all directors as well as Chairmen of CPSEs retire at the age of 60. This meant that some would have only a very limited time on the board to shape policies.
As on March 31, 2012, there were 260 CPSEs, excluding seven insurance companies. At that time, these companies employed about 13.98 lakh people.
