Public Sector Undertakings (PSUs) are government-owned corporations or state-owned enterprises created by the Government of India to undertake commercial activities on behalf of government. Large infrastructure projects in areas of transport, telecom, energy, fuel, mining, etc are often initiated and managed by the PSUs.

PSUs have been awarded different levels of financial autonomy. These companies are “public sector companies that have comparative advantages”, giving them greater autonomy to compete in the global market so as to “support [them] in their drive to become global giants.”

The level of financial autonomy is currently divided into three categories:

  • Maharatna
  • Navratna
  • Miniratna CPSEs

As on 5 May 2015 there are 7 Maharatna, 17 Navratna and 72 Miniratna CPSE’s.

GATE scores play a vital role as they act as a gateway of getting into the PSU’s. As GATE is held for testing the comprehensive understanding of various undergraduate subjects in engineering and science which itself happens to be the core requirement of the PSU’s. Many Indian PSUs or Private Sector Undertakings have set the GATE score as the minimum criterion for appearing in their job processes and campus interviews. Hence, as an Engineer, if you do not possess GATE scores, you will be automatically left out of their selection process.
