About Company

Bharat Petroleum Corporation Limited or BPCL is a renowned name in India's Oil & Gas sector. The company is involved in oil exploration and production. Although the company is owned and operated by the Government of India, they have been planning to divest it since 2021. The government has a 52.98% stake in BPCL and plans to sell its entire stake. However, the deal hasn't progressed much because of the unavailability of bidders. BPCL divestment is part of the government's ambitious target to collect INR 175,000 crore by divesting its stake in government firms, including BPCL, IDBI Bank, Container Corporation of India, Pawan Hans, BEML Limited, Shipping Corporation of India, etc.

BPCL is managed by the Ministry of Petroleum and Natural Gas. The company's headquarters is in Mumbai, Maharashtra. BPCL is the second-largest government-owned oil corporation in India. It achieved the 309th rank in the 2020 Fortune List of the world's biggest corporations and the 792nd rank on Forbes' 2021 'Global 2000' list.


The History of BPCL


On 24th January 1976, the Burmah Shell Group of Companies was taken over by the Government of India to form Bharat Refineries Limited. On 1st August 1977, it was renamed Bharat Petroleum Corporation Limited. It was also the first refinery to process newly found indigenous crude (Bombay High), in the country.

In 2003, the government went ahead to privatize BPCL. However, the Center for Public Interest Litigation filed a petition with the Supreme Court asking it to direct the government not to privatise BPCL and Hindustan Petroleum. Prashant Bhushan and Rajinder Sachar mentioned that the government could disinvest only if they amend or repeal the Acts used to nationalize the firm. However, since the incumbent government lacked a majority in the Parliament, they could not move ahead with the proposal.

Finally, in May 2016, the Narendra Modi government passed the Repealing and Amending Act 2016 and repealed the Act nationalizing BPCL. On 12th September 2017, BPCL declared a Maharatna company. A Maharatna company is a government entity with a high market capitalization and consistently decent profits.
