Hindustan Zinc was formerly a public sector undertaking (PSU), but currently, the majority stake in the firm is held by the Anil Agarwal-led Vedanta group. The Centre currently holds a 29.54 per cent stake in the company. In 2002, it sold 20 per cent of the company to Vedanta group. The group has a 64.92 per cent stake in the company.
The Centre has been trying to sell its entire stake in the company but has been unable to do so in FY23. Through the stake sale, it aimed to achieve its Rs 50,000 crore disinvestment target for FY23. But in a recent report, it said that the decision would be taken after Vedanta's decision to sell a part of its stake in Hindustan Zinc to raise money.
