The Centre is also planning to sell 3 percent stake in Indian Oil Corporation (IOC) and 5 percent equity in Rural Electrification Corporation (REC). It also intends to offload 15 percent equity in Neyveli Lignite Corporation (NLC). Moreover, the government intends to sell 10 percent stake each in NHPC, NTPC and Power Finance Corporation (PFC).
