Mazagon Dock Shipbuilders Is Now A 'Navratna' Company

Defence major Mazagon Dock Shipbuilders on Tuesday evening announced that the government had granted it “Navranta” status.

What Happened: The company in an exchange filing said that the “Department of Public Enterprises (DPE) has approved the proposal for the grant of Navratna status to Mazagon Dock Shipbuilders Limited.”

The Indian government grants Navratna status to premier public sector undertakings (PSUs), empowering them to execute investments of up to ₹1,000 crore without requiring approval from the central authority.

These firms are permitted to invest up to 30% of their net worth annually, provided it remains under ₹1,000 crore. Additionally, they have the option to participate in joint ventures, forge partnerships, and set up overseas subsidiaries.

Before Mazdock, 17 other PSUs fell under the category. The latest one to be included was IREDA in Apri.
