The purpose of the issue is to generate funds for transmission project and dilution of GoI stake. The total number of shares on offer are 78.70 crore including GoI’s stake sale of 18.51 crore share. Of the fresh shares, about 2.4 per cent will be reserved for the employees. This is the second follow-on offering from PGCIL that sold 10 per cent stake along with a similar stake divested by the government in November 2010 at an issue price of Rs 90 a share.
