New Delhi : In the name of "professionalisation", the government has
come out with an advisory that candidates belonging to SCs/STs and OBC
categories should be given preference in the appointment of
non-official directors on PSU boards.

In addition, the advisory states that women candidates should also get
preference for appointment to the boards of the central public sector
units (PSUs).

The advisory has been issued by the Department of Public Enterprises
(DPE) to different administrative ministries on the recommendations of
the Standing Committee of Parliament on Industry.

In an office memorandum (OM), the DPE said it considered the
recommendations of the parliamentary panel and decided to convey the
same to the administrative ministries.

The title of the OM is "Professionalisation of boards of Central
Public Sector Enterprises..."

It said the DPE has "decided to communicate" the concern expressed by
the committee to all the administrative ministries/departments which
initiate proposals for appointment to such positions.

There are 217 operational PSUs, of which 158 are profit-making
