Govt to invite financial bids for Shipping Corp in May –sources.

The government plans to invite financial offers for the privatization of Shipping Corp of India Ltd (SCI) nse:sci next month as it seeks to sell the state-owned company after years of delay, two government officials told Reuters.

In 2019, the administration led by Prime Minister Narendra Modi announced plans to privatize several state-owned companies, including the sale of its stake in SCI, which stalled due to regulatory delays.

Nse:sci, which owns and operates bulk carriers and oil tankers, among others, had to spin off its non-core assets before the government could sell its 63.75% stake, causing a hurdle over how much funds would be transferd to the spun off entity.

SCI completed the spin-off last month after obtaining regulatory approval at the end of February.

This spun off entity, called SCI Land Assets Ltd, must be listed by April 23 and the government plans to do so soon, one of the two officials said.

The government now aims to invite financial offers for SCI, which owns and operates around a third of India’s total tonnage, by mid-May, the two officials said.

The officers did not want to be name as the plan is not yet public.

The final decision will be made on April 14 by sheet headed by India’s breakfront secretary, they said.

This panel will also study a proposal to invite initial offers to sell the government’s 31% stake in Container Corporation of India Ltd, which has been delayed from 2020, one of the officials said.

The Finance Ministry did not immediately respond to an email seeking comment.
