The board showed its appreciation for the status update and directed the management to resolve the pending issues besetting privatisation. It also advised that other government divisions should be approached to help the Privatisation Commission in its work.

The board discussed various matters of importance including the pending issues relating to litigations in different courts. The approval of the PC Board was also solicited for the special audit report on receivables as on 30-6-2022 of the PC’s proceeds including the statement of aforementioned receivables.
