GATE examination is one of the most popular common entrance tests of India and also one of the toughest. One of the reasons for that is because the candidates can land PSU jobs through it.

The PSUs have their own recruitment policies regarding the positions and pay packages offered, the qualifying score and the final recruitment based on personal interviews and group discussions. However, a good score always gives the candidate an edge over the others in getting the placement in PSU through GATE.

Types of PSUs

Any Indian organisation that is state-owned is termed as a PSU or Public Sector Undertaking. These establishments are either owned by the central government or any of the state authorities of India, or both. These enterprises have subdivisions within themselves Maharatna, Navratna and Miniratnas.

All of these companies have their own recruiting procedure. Some of these PSUs recruit their employers through GATE. They set their own cut offs each separately and make the final decision based on the personal interviews and group discussion sessions.

The PSUs in India are divided into four subcategories.

Maharatna PSU

Those PSUs which for three years have an annual average net profit of 5,000 crores OR an average annual net worth of 10,000 crores or an average annual turnover of 20,000 crores get the status of a Maharatna PSU. These companies get the benefit of autonomy of investing up to 15% of their net in a project. The top companies like SAIL, ONGC, NTPC, CIL and IOCL have the Maharatna status.

Navratna PSU

To get the status of Navratna, a company must first be a Miniratna PSU. Upon having 4 independent directors on their board, they can be given the status of Navratna. It also has to score 60 out of 100 in the various parameters which include net profit, net worth, total manpower cost, total cost of production, cost of services, PBDIT (Profit Before Depreciation, Interest and Taxes), capital employed etcetera. They have the financial freedom of investing up to 1000 crore or 30% of their net worth in a whole year.

Miniratna I - PSU

The companies which have continuously profited for the last 3 years and have had a profit of 30 crores or more in one of the years are given the status of a Miniratna I PSU. They have the autonomy to invest up to 500 crores or their net worth whichever amount is lesser.

Miniratna II - PSU

The status of the Miniratna II category is just below the I category, where the companies with a positive net worth for three years are given this status. They are free to invest up to 300 crores or 50% of their net worth whichever is lower.

Many of these companies do their PSU recruitment through GATE.
