Mumbai – After receiving board permission, Bharti Airtel‘s subsidiary Bharti Hexacom filed the draft red herring prospectus (DRHP) for an initial public offering with the Securities and Exchange Board of India (Sebi) on Saturday.

As part of the IPO, Telecommunications Consultants India is offering to sell up to 100,000,000 shares.

The government-owned business Telecommunications Consultants holds a 30% share in Bharti Hexacom.

Bharti Airtel owns the remaining 70% of Bharti Hexacom.

According to a notification from Bharti Airtel to the exchanges, there won’t be any further shares issued in the IPO, meaning Bharti Hexacom won’t get any money from the share sale.

Bharti Hexacom won’t get any revenues from the share offering since there won’t be a new share issue during the IPO.

Three months prior, the Economic Times published an article citing insiders suggesting that the government might profit Rs 10,000 crore by selling its stake in the mobile telecommunications company.
