The tribunal comprising of VP Singh and Rajesh Sharma allowed the government-appointed board's plea to approve sale of 51 percent stake in seven wind energy arms to Orix.

Orix Corporation is already an equity partner in the group and owns 49 percent stake in each of these seven operating wind power plants.
