FTIL is making all efforts to complete the sale of its stake in MCX by April 25 and has called for a Board meeting on that day to finalise the bidders, FTIL had said last week.

Jignesh Shah-promoted FTIL has to reduce its stake in MCX to 2 per cent from the current 26 per cent to comply with the regulatory norms following the NSEL payment crisis of Rs 5,600 crore.

FTIL has appointed a committee to oversee its restructuring plan, which includes divesting its take in MCX.
