The government owns 78.4 percent of Oil India.

"We have approved the disinvestment ministry's proposal for a share sale in Oil India," the source said, on condition of anonymity.

The source said the share sale will take place after a similar sale of shares in state-owned explorer Oil and Natural Gas Corp. The ONGC share sale is unlikely to take place before March 31, 2012. It has been postponed several times because of poor market conditions.
