New Delhi , Aug. 13

IN a bid to curb the inclination of interference with respect to the structure, composition, selection, appointment and service conditions of the board of directors and senior management personnel of public sector enterprises (PSEs), the Prime Minister, Dr Manmohan Singh, has directed his Ministers to ensure that the guidelines and policies evolved by the Government in this regard are strictly followed.

According to the Prime Minister's Office (PMO), Dr Singh has shot off identical letters to the Ministers saying that proper and efficient functioning of the PSEs was critical to the fulfilment of the commitments of the National Common Minimum Programme (NCMP) aimed at overall growth of the economy.

In his letter, the Prime Minister has reminded the Ministers that there are standing instructions and guidelines on such matters approved by the Appointments Committee of the Cabinet (ACC) and the Department of Personnel and Training from time to time.

While requesting them "to ensure that there were no deviations from these guidelines and standing instructions", he said, "I am directing the Cabinet Secretary to closely monitor the compliance."
