EIL To Bid To Buy Out Govt Stake In PDIL

It, however, did not give details saying they were confidential.

In a regulatory filing, Engineers India Ltd (EIL) said its board of directors in a meeting Thursday “considered the proposal for acquisition of 100 per cent paid-up share capital of PDIL from President of India.”
