TCI shouldthereforehave known not only that CIL had goals broader than shareholder value creationbut also that it would not prioritise shareholder value over these other goals One can certainly criticise this policy on its meritsand support market-based resource allocation over central planning But from this perspectivethe correct solution would surely be to auction off Indias coal mineswith the government either extracting large upfront paymentsor getting the benefit of the lowest tariff bid Allowing a part-private company to corner scarce national resources without fair competitionand sell them at market pricesis inefficient and offensive whether that resource is spectrumlandor coal Thatrather than CILs present pricing policywould be the true theft of a national resource Will this scare foreign investors Unlikely Investors fear uncertaintynot predictable irrationality Knowing how India worksfew investors would be surprised by a PSU subordinating shareholder value to policy considerationsespecially when it had committed to do so in advance Perhaps the best proof of this is how stable CILs stock price has been in recent monthssuggesting that this is what most investors other than TCI expected in any case While the media is understandably excited at the prospect of the government being sued by a financial institution (catch UTIor even HDFC doing that)TCIs legal options do not look promising Given the disclosures in CILs prospectusit would have had a weak case in court It is now pursuing relief under investment protection treaties that India has with the UK and with Cyprus (where its funds are domiciled) But these treaties only require that India extend fair and equitable treatment and freedom from expropriation to persons from these countriesand it would be a stretch to argue that CIL has violated either condition TCIs best bet is to make enough noise so that the Indian government will let CIL take a small price hikewhich will help its stock price and allow TCI to exit at a profit It helps that the finance minister has projected Rs 30000 crore as revenue from disinvestment in his budgetwhich means that the government will be receptive to arguments that emphasise its reputation with capital markets The fund realises this and hasthereforebeen particularly vocal in the Indian and international media TCI has a right to pursue maximum returns for its investors What is disturbing is the uncritical acceptance of its argument by so many professing only a concern with the public interest The correct demand to make of the government would be comprehensive reform in the coal sectorresulting in the auctioning of coal mines And the correct response to TCI would be to thank them for their activism while rejecting their specific request in the name of the great Indian majority that does not own the 10 per cent of CIL that was privatised The writer is managing director of Laburnum Capitala Delhi-based investment firm For all
