Tata Power said today that it has inked the implementation agreement with Tata Advanced Systems Ltd (TASL) to sell its Strategic Engineering Division (SED) which is engaged in the defence business.
It said both the companies will now initiate the process of seeking markets regulator SEBl's approval, followed by submission of draft Scheme to National Company Law Tribunal (NCLT).
"In connection with sale of our SED to TASL. The Company has executed Implementation Agreement with TASL on April 25, 2018," Tata Power said in a BSE filing today.
