State-run hydro power giant NHPC on Friday said its board may consider a proposal to buy back shares at its meeting scheduled on November 14, in line with the government's aim to garner around Rs 80,000 crore from disinvestment this fiscal.
The board of directors may consider the proposal for buyback of the fully paid-up equity shares of the company at its meeting Wednesday, the company said in a BSE filing.
However, the company did not specify the number of shares it proposes to buy back or the size of the transaction.
The government holds 73.67 per cent stake in NHPC Ltd, as on September 30, 2018.
