Prime Minister Narendra Modi's government has been divesting its stake in several public and private companies to meet its Rs 72,500 ($11.38 billion) divestment target during the year to March 2018.

The Cabinet in April cleared the disinvestment of these four PSUs under the defence ministry, and thereafter DIPAM invited bids from merchant bankers and legal advisors for managing the stake sales. Miniratna PSU BDL was established in 1970. It manufactures guided missiles and allied defence equipment. It’s authorised share capital was Rs 125 crore and paid-up equity capital was Rs 122.19 crore as on January 31, 2017.
