Reliance Infrastructure Limited (RInfra) on Saturday announced the successful completion of sale of its entire 74 per cent equity stake in Parbati Koldam Transmission Company Limited (PKTCL) to India Grid Trust (IndiGrid) for an enterprise value of Rs 900 crore.

RInfra owns 74 per cent in PKTCL located in the state of Himachal Pradesh and Punjab in joint venture with the Power Grid Corporation of India Limited (PGCIL).

The deal was announced in November 2020 with the signing of a definitive binding agreement between RInfra and IndiGrid and has now been completed with transfer of shares of PKTCL, and receipt of sale consideration.

The total transaction value is Rs 900 crore. The entire sale proceeds are being utilised for debt reduction.
