About PSUs

What are PSUs?

PSU’s are government-owned corporations or state-owned enterprises created by the Government of India to undertake commercial activities on behalf of government. Several Public Sector Undertakings (PSUs) under the aegis of Government of India regularly provide tremendous employment opportunities in various technical and management areas.

 

MAHARATNA PSU’s:
Maharatna is the status given to top public sector enterprises where the companies have the authority to make foreign investments of upto Rs 5,000 crores without taking any government approval. To be qualified as Maharatna, the company should gain an annual net profit of over Rs. 5,000 crores, net worth of Rs. 15,000 crores and turnover of Rs. 25,000 crores over past three consecutive years. At present the companies which have Maharatna status are: SAIL, ONGC, NTPC, CIL and IOCL.

 

NAVRATNA PSU’s:

Navratna status is conferred to the companies by the Department of Public Enterprises. To be qualified as a Navratna, the company must obtain a score of 60 out of 100. The score is based on six parameters which include net profit to net worth, total manpower cost to total cost of production or cost of services, PBDIT (Profit before depreciation, interest and taxes) to capital employed, PBDIT to turnover, EPS (Earning per Share) and inter-sectoral performance. Additionally, a company must first be a Miniratna and have four independent directors on its board before it can be made a Navratna. The Navratna status gives privileges to enhance financial and operational autonomy and empowers to invest up to Rs. 1000 crores or 15% of their net worth on a single project without seeking government approval. In a year, these companies can spend up to 30% of their net worth not exceeding Rs. 1000 crores. They will also have the freedom to enter joint ventures, form alliances and float subsidiaries abroad.

 

How to Prepare for PSUs?

    • PSU’s entrance Exam Question Paper mainly consists of two major sections:
    • Technical Section: Subject Specialization of related stream
    • Non-Technical Section: general Awareness, current affairs, English language , Reasoning  & Aptitude.

Hence to crack PSU competitive exam, candidate should prepare for both technical and non-technical  sections, where 50% to 70% questions are from technical and remaining questions from non-technical sections.

  • Be aware of exam pattern of different PSU’s like number of technical questions, number of non-technical questions, negative marking, exam duration, marks per question etc.
  • Always make it a habit of referring to previous year question papers.
  • Adopt Reference books for derivations, equations, conceptual thought process, theory  etc.
  • Short  Cut Techniques: Traditional methods to solve numerical problems is a time taking process, try to adopt short cut techniques to save the time.
  • Practice previous year question paper and analyze in which topics you are weak and concentrate more on those topics. Always try to solve  the papers in given time limit to obtain the idea that how many questions you are able to solve in given time limits.
  • Group discussion Round: group discussion is a crucial round conducted for shortlisted candidates. Good communication skills, topic knowledge, team spirit, leadership qualities, patience level are the major parameters to be considered.
  • Personal interview: sound technical knowledge, positive attitude, body language, good communication skills play an important role to clear personal interviews.
