The Centre will sell up to 8 per cent shares in Housing & Urban Development Corporation Ltd (HUDCO) through offer for sale (OFS) on Tuesday and Wednesday.

In a tweet, Tuhin Kanta Pandey, Secretary in the Department of Investment and Public Asset Management (DIPAM), said that the offer for sale of government of India’s equity will open on Tuesday for non-retail investors.

“Offer for Sale of GoI equity in HUDCO opens tomorrow for Non-Retail investors. Day 2 for Retail investors. Government would divest 5.5 per cent shares with an additional 2.5 per cent as Green Shoe Option,” he tweeted.

At the current share price of Rs 47 on the BSE, the Centre is likely to raise around Rs 750 crore from the offer for sale.

The floor price for the offer has been fixed at Rs 45 per equity share, the company said in a regulatory filing.
