Punjab Alkalis Update

I had earlier written on the opportunity arising out of the possible disinvestment of Punjab Alkalis by the Punjab state government.
The opportunity seems to have taken a ominous turn with an update that I read on the website which states that no bids have been received before the due date. The link is enclosed below
http://www.pbdisinvest.nic.in/html/approver_current_status_PSU.htm
Though I cant make out whether this is a old update when initial interest for the disinvestment was called for or a fresh update for the financial bids. Part of it could originate from the floor price that the government has defined or structure of the deal.
There could be fresh round of bids called with some concession from the government, I would rather err on the side of caution. Considering there is no valuation comfort, it makes sense to exit the situation without having to live thru the risk.
