Union Cabinet approved the hike of government stake in Industrial Finance Corporation of India (IFCI) ltd to 51 percent.

Created On: Dec 30, 2014 16:19 IST

The increase in government stake will be through infusion of 60 crore rupees by way of acquisition of preference shares from existing share holders. As a result, India’s oldest financial institution IFCI will now become a government owned company.

The current shareholding of Union government in IFCI after inclusion of the preference share capital was 47.93 percent. Therefore, IFCI was not a Government Company under section 2(45) of the Companies Act, 2013.
