Government's nod for Hindustan Zinc stake sale

The central government has decided to sell its residual stake in Hindustan Zinc and monetize the assets of defunct Bharat Gold Mines.

The two decisions were cleared at a meeting of the Cabinet Committee on Economic Affairs on Wednesday.

The government presently holds 29.5% stake in the zinc-lead miner, which is a subsidiary of Vedanta and is worth around Rs 380 bn at the current market price.

Any proceeds from the stake sale will help the union government to meet the divestment target of Rs 650 bn for the current financial year.

The Cabinet also decided to wind up Bharat Gold Mines and transfer its land and other assets to the National Land Monetisation Corp.

A part of its land will be transferred to the Karnataka government for industrial development or building a township. The Cabinet also approved the modalities for the land transfer.

The disinvestment and asset monetization plan pursued by the government mobilizes resources for fresh investments into infrastructure, which is a vital part of its economic revival strategy.

Inflation leads to delay in revision of GST rates

As per sources, the planned goods and services tax rate revision to boost the revenue of the Centre and states is likely to be delayed due to a spike in inflation.

The Centre is examining ways to tame prices, including by improving logistics for commodities such as cement.

The eight-year high of retail inflation, which surged to 7.8% in April has forced the central government to cut taxes on fuels, imported edible oils, and raw materials for steel and petrochemical production.

The recent ban on the export of wheat, imposed limit on sugar exports, and levied export duty on iron and steel intermediates are also accounted for steps towards inflation control.
