    NEW DELHI:The government is likely to launch an additional offering of CPSE-Exchange Traded Fund (ETF) on March 19 to raise at least 3,500 crore, officials said Tuesday.

    The ETF sale through follow-on fund offer (FFO) will come with the option of retaining up to 5,000 crore through green shoe option, they said.

    "The additional offering of ETF would be on March 19. The base issue size has been fixed at 3,500 crore, with an option to retain additional subscription," the officials said.

    During the last offering in November, the government mopped up 17,000 crore, the biggest disinvestment transaction through ETF.

    The proceeds from the ETF sale will help the government move towards meeting the 80,000 crore disinvestment target set for the current fiscal.

    As on February 28, the government has realised 56,473.32 crore as disinvestment proceeds against the target of 80,000 crore during the current financial year (2018-19).

    The CPSE (central public sector enterprises) ETF comprises shares of the 11 state-owned companies, including Oil and Natural Gas Corporation, Coal India, Indian Oil Company, Oil India, Power Finance Corporation, Rural Electrification Corporation and Bharat Electronics. NTPC, SJVN, NLC and NBCC are the new entrants in the ETF basket.

    CPSE ETF was set up in 2014 and the government has so far sold stake in 10 companies in the basket in four tranches, raising 28,500 crore.

    NTPC carries the highest weight in the index at 19.59%, followed by Coal India at 19.17%, Indian Oil Corp at 18.98%, and ONGC at 18.92%.
