Why cannot Government start profitable companies in every sector? In India the present situarion is Government is there only in strategic sectors like Space, Banking, Telecom. In vast reaminder of sectors Government just plays a regulator role. Why not we have Government companies in very sector. For eg. Government can run companies in automobiles, Steel, Chemicals, run stationery shops etc. just like any other company. The profit out of these can be added to the treasury. I am not saying about Governmentisation of economy. But Government also beiny a player on private economy. This boosts competition, gives employment, raises revenue of Government.
