Terming the central government's decision a right decision, Anil Singhvi said, "Buying a huge company like BPCL requires lot of work. One can't do the pre-bidding work that includes due diligence and value assessment of the BPCL when there is complete lockdown across the world. Apart from this, it's not like you signed a cheque and handed it over to the GoI and the BPCL becomes yours. It requires some formalities on the government side as well. So, the Government of India has taken the right decision by providing ample time to the bidders interested in buying BPCL."

On how it will help GoI and the BPCL, the Market Guru said, "By extending the EOI deadline, it will help both the bidders and the Government of India because those bidders who were interested in the BPCL disinvestment but due to the limitations posed by the Coronavirus lockdown, will now be able to do the required formalities to post their bids for the BPCL disinvestment process. It will help GoI to get better price for this huge company. After all, the GoI can't afford to sell it off in a hurry."
