: -
Prior to Independence, there were few ‘Public Sector’ Enterprises in the country.These included the Railways, the Posts and Telegraphs, the Port Trusts, theOrdinance Factories, All India Radio, few enterprises like the Government SaltFactories, Quinine Factories, etc. which were departmentally managed.The public sector is that portion of society controlled by national, state or provincial, and local governments. In the United States, the public sectoencompasses universal, critical services such as national defense, homelandsecurity, police protection, fire fighting, urban planning, corrections, taxation, andvarious social programs.The public sector overlaps with the private sector in producing or providing certaingoods and services. The extent of this overlap varies from country to country, stateto state, province to province, and city to city. This overlap is most often seen inwaste management, water management, health care, security services, andshelters for homeless and abused people. Sometimes, service providers movefrom the public sector to the private. This is known as privatization, and has beentaking place in recent years on a large scale throughout the world. In other instances, a service may shift from the private sector to the public. This is lesscommon, but health care is one area where some governments are providing or experimenting with services previously furnished by private providers.Governments routinely hire private corporations to provide goods and services for the public sector, a practice known as outsourcing. Examples include themanufacture, construction, or maintenance of aircraft, military hardware, electronicand communications equipment, computers, roads, freeways, bridges, parks, andrecreation areas.

This further fueled competition amongst same industry players and even in governmentorganizations. Further, the government of India also divested some of itsenterprises to ensure smooth operation of these companies which was otherwisewere loss making. It also went further and forged joint venture private Indiancompanies, especially in sectors like, telecommunication, petroleum, housing andinfrastructure.
