NTPC, 3 other PSUs included in CPSE ETF; FinMin plans follow-on offer by Nov-end

Monday, November 12, 2018

The finance ministry has rejigged the CPSE Exchange Traded Fund (ETF) and has included in the basket the scrips of four state-owned companies NTPC, SJVN, NLC and NBCC, an official said.

The ministry has removed three of the existing companies GAIL, Engineers India Ltd (EIL) and Container Corporation of India in the ETF basket and has replaced them with four new companies.

"NTPC, SJVN, NLC and NBCC have been included in the CPSE ETF, while GAIL, EIL and Container Corporation removed from the basket. CPSE ETF now has scrips of 11 state-owned companies as against 10 earlier," an official told PTI.

The ministry is planning to launch the follow-on public offer of CPSE exchange-traded fund (ETF) by the end of this month and is eyeing about Rs 8,000 crore as sale proceeds, the official added.

The other seven bluechip PSUs in the CPSE ETF are ONGC, Coal India, IOC, Oil India, PFC, REC and Bharat Electronics. An ETF functions like a mutual fund scheme.

The ministry has already raised Rs 11,500 crore through three tranches of the CPSE ETF, and a fourth tranche is being planned by the end of this month.

"The ministry, acting through the fund manager of the CPSE ETF, has rebalanced the CPSE ETF by including 4 new scrips," the official added.

Three CPSEs — GAIL, Engineers India Ltd (EIL) and Container Corporation — has been removed from the index since the government holding in these companies has fallen below 55%.

Since the weightage and scrip value of GAIL, Container Corp and EIL were higher, four new CPSEs had to be included in the ETF to replace them to keep the CPSE ETF index value at the same level, the official explained.

Aries (Mar 21 - Apr 20)Life sometimes smiles down upon you, and today seems to be such a day. Though you will remain occupied with your work, there will be no pressure. Same is the case with your personal life. What more does one need? Ganesha is probably trying to teach you to be content. Extravagance of any kind will cause you money problems. Be particularly careful about this.
