Reiterating that the disinvestment target of Rs 1.75 lakh crore for fiscal 2021-22 was “imminently achievable”, Chief Economic Adviser K V Subramanian on Saturday said the proposed initial public offering (IPO) by Life Insurance Corporation (LIC) itself could garner Rs 1 lakh crore for the government.
