Mumbai - Arabstoday

Sovereign wealth funds from the UAE and Kuwait are among foreign investors that have pledged to buy shares in India’s state-run Oil & Natural Gas Corp (ONGC), the Economic Times reported on Monday. Officials from the Kuwait Investment Authority and Abu Dhabi Investment Authority met Indian government officials last week and agreed to buy shares as part of the government’s planned sale of 5 percent of ONGC, the report said. Other foreign funds are also discussing the possible purchase of shares in Oil & Natural Gas Corp, said the report said, citing three unnamed people familiar with the discussions. A sale of 5 per cent of Oil & Natural Gas Corp would raise about 120 billion rupees ($2.4 billion) based on the ONGC’s current share price. A spokesman for the Finance Ministry could not be reached for comment. Officials from the Kuwait Investment Authority and Abu Dhabi Investment Authority could not be reached outside of business hours. A government panel last week approved a plan to sell some of the government’s shareholding in Oil & Natural Gas Corp through a share auction but did not provide a timeframe. New Delhi is widely expected to miss its deficit target of 4.6 per cent of gross domestic product for the fiscal year ending in March, in part due to its inability to meet the budget goal of raising more than $8.1 billion from the sale of stakes in state-run companies. Shares in Oil & Natural Gas Corp, which has a market value of $48.8 billion, have risen almost 10 per cent in 2012. The overall market has risen 18 per cent in the same period.
