PTI Mumbai | Updated on March 12, 2018

Shares of D B Realty tumbled by over six per cent on the bourses today, as the UAE-based Etisalat decided to shut down its Indian telecom venture with DB Group, following a court order quashing its mobile licence in connection with the 2G spectrum case.

After starting the day on a weak note, shares of DB Realty, a part of the DB Group, further plunged by 6.18 per cent to Rs 83.40 on the BSE by mid-day trade. Similarly, on the NSE, the scrip lost 5.91 per cent to Rs 83.55.

Etisalat owns about 45 per cent stake in Etisalat DB, a joint venture between DB Group and Etisalat.

In a late night statement yesterday, Etisalat announced its decision to shut down the Indian telecom venture.

“The decision has been taken in order to protect the interests of all stakeholders and to avoid incurring further costs at this time of rapid change and continued uncertainty in the Indian telecommunications sector,” Etisalat said.

Etisalat is the second foreign telecom company to exit India after Bahrain Telecom which offloaded its 42.7 per cent stake in S Tel.
