This discussion has been on in the markets off and on and this time around it could happen as the government is looking to raise funds desperately. They hold shares in ITC and Axis Bank under the SUUTI scheme, which was hived off from the troubled US-64 scheme in the year 1999. That stake value has come down sharply in the last few months. The principal large holdings in the SUUTI-99 portfolio are ITC, Axis Bank and Larsen & Toubro. Unfortunately, all these stocks are sharply down from their yearly highs and are trading close to their annual lows. Selling out at this stage may not be a very smart thing to do as they would get much lower value if they sell in the midst of all this correction. That is a low hanging fruit that is always available to the government and it use it at any time. However, they may want to wait for better valuations?
