DLF to sell stake in JV to raise fund

DLF is looking to raise Rs 300-500 crore by selling its stake in a JV with Mumbai-based realtor Akruti City for a commercial project in Andheri.

DLF has already scrapped a 5 star hotel project in Prabhadevi in Mumbai with Akruti. DLF was the majority stakeholder in the project. DLF has been looking to monetise its non-core assets to raise funds over the next one year to pay off its debt.

The company had net debt of Rs 13,958 crore, of which Rs 3,591 crore is due for repayment this fiscal. The developer has also put its wind power business on the block and is expecting to collect about Rs 900 crore from it. DLF said it would reduce its outstanding debt by half in this financial year by raising about Rs 5,500 crore through assets sales, plot sales and cash flow from the business.
