‘Navratna’ is a special status given by the government to a selected group of top-performing Central Public Sector Enterprises (CPSEs). These companies get more autonomy and financial power because of their good performance. 

To become a Navratna, a company first needs to be a Miniratna and meet certain criteria, like having four independent directors on its board. 

Once a company receives a Navratna status, it can invest up to Rs. 1000 crore or 15 percent of its net worth on a single project, or up to 30 percent of its net worth in a year, but not exceeding Rs. 1000 crores.
