Abstract: The government procurement comprises a substantial amount of total procurement for every economy in the recent years. In light of the present procurement market and existing structure, this study throws a light on the evolving amount of the procurement by the Indian PSUs in recent years in the light of the WTO agreements. Though there is some degree of uncertainty and difficulties in the exact size and the pattern of procurement by these PSUs, but the study finds a voluminous increase in the awarded contract value in the last three years. With the use of the official database of the Maharatna and the Navratna companies and PROWESS database, the procurement under broad utilities groups for 185 PSUs shows that the utilities and services groups stands highest followed by the manufacturing, extraction and the oil sector companies. The PSUs under the Maharatna/ Navratna category contribute a substantial proportion to the total procurement as evident from the findings.
