Top Stocks in Focus Today

Among the buzzing stocks today will be insurance stocks.

The government is ready with a proposal to amend insurance laws to privatise one of the three unlisted general insurance companies.

The draft bill, which has been sent for approval by the Union Cabinet before introducing it in Parliament, seeks to remove the 51% floor on government holding.

Foreign investors will be able to hold up to 74% in the divested general insurance firm subject to Indian management and control, as per government sources.

The article also stated that the centre has ruled out plan to sell New India Assurance (NIACL) or GIC.

While NITI Aayog has suggested the name of at least one general insurer to be privatised, a decision on which one of the three - United India, National or Oriental Insurance will be privatised is yet to be taken.

The name has been shared with the department of investment and public asset management (DIPAM) and will be recommended by a panel of secretaries with ministerial panel taking a call on it before it is endorsed by the Union Cabinet.
