The government is expected to take a decision tomorrow on a proposal for the revival of Scooters India Ltd.
    
"In the last Cabinet meeting, the proposal was deferred due to the absence of Heavy Industries and Public Enterprises Minister Praful Patel in the meeting. Now, it will be taken up at tomorrow's meeting," a source said.
    
After the government shelved the plan to sell its entire stake in the state-owned firm, the Department of Heavy Industries (DHI) had proposed a revival package of more than Rs 200 crore.

Govt likely to infuse Rs 200 cr in Scooters India
    
The revival includes both cash and non-cash assistance by the government. While cash assistance implies equity infusion, grants and loans, non-cash assistance includes waiving interest, Government loan and conversion of loan into equity.
    
Besides, the department had consulted the Board for Reconstruction of Public Sector Enterprises, which had examined the case and later suggested a revival package.
    
In 2011, the Cabinet had given its approval for divesting the government's entire 95.38 per cent stake in Scooters India to a private player through strategic route (outright sale). But the DHI decided to put it on hold.
    
The automobile company, which has about 1,200 regular employees, has been incurring losses since 2002-03. In March 2009, the company was declared sick.
    
Incorporated in 1972, Scooters India initially manufactured scooters under the brand name Vijai Super for the domestic market and Lambretta for overseas markets.
    
Later, it ventured into the three-wheeler segment with the Vikram brand. In 1997, it stopped manufacturing two- wheelers and is now engaged in the manufacture and marketing of only three-wheelers.
    
The company's net loss (before tax) stood at about Rs 20 crore during the 2011-12 fiscal.
    
The company scrip closed at Rs 33.7 on the BSE, down 4.94 per cent.
