Question:

Give a few examples of public sector activities and explain why the government has taken them up.

Some examples of public sector activities are as follows :

(1) Getting roads and bridges constructed

(2) Improving railway construction and facilities

(3) To generate electricity

(4) Arrangement of irrigation by dams etc.

The implementation of these activities is done by the government because there is a lot of expenditure in these works and the profit received in these works is always much less than the expenses. Because it works keeping in mind the facilities of the public.
