 It will promote people’s ownership by encouraging public participation in CPSEs. It will also trigger multilayered oversight mechanism which will enhance shareholders’ value and will promote corporate governance norms in such companies

Moreover, through public offer, management of these CPSEs will become more accountable to its shareholders.
