It is a Maharatna PSU under the Ministry of Heavy Industries. BHEL was established in 1964. It is India's largest power generation equipment manufacturer.

BHEL was established in 1964 ushering in the indigenous heavy electrical equipment industry in India. Heavy Electricals (India) Limited was merged with BHEL in 1974. In 1991, BHEL was converted into a public limited company. Over time, it developed the capability to produce a variety of electrical, electronic and mechanical equipment for all sectors, including transmission, transportation, oil and gas and other allied industries. However, the bulk of the revenue of the company is derived from the sale of equipment for power generation such as turbines, boilers, etc. As of 2017, BHEL supplied equipment contributed to about 55 percent of the total installed power generation capacity of India. The company has also supplied thousands of electric locomotives to the Indian Railway, as well as defence equipment such as the Super Rapid Gun Mount (SRGM) naval guns manufactured in partnership with the Indian Ordnance Factories and Defence Simulators to the Indian Armed Forces.
