NEW DELHI: NITI Aayog will re-examine the proposal for strategic disinvestment of the Container Corporation of India Ltd (CONCOR), Parliament was informed today.

“NITI Aayog will re-examine the proposal for strategic disinvestment of CONCOR,” Minister of State (Independent Charge) for Ministry of Planning Rao Inderjit Singh said in a written reply in the Lok Sabha.

The Minister further said the Ministry of Railways will be consulted before taking a final decision on CONCOR.
