Tata Comm scrip jumps to 52-week high

| | Updated on: Jul 20, 2012

Shares of Tata Communications surged over 7 per cent in the morning trade today, a day after the Government approved the demerger of surplus VSNL land into a separate company.

After making a bullish opening, the scrip further gained 6.83 per cent to a 52-week high of Rs 264.05 on the BSE. On the NSE, the stock surged 7.38 per cent to a one-year high of Rs 263.90.

The issue of surplus land has been pending since Tata Communications acquired the PSU in 2002, as the land assets owned by VSNL were not part of the deal.

The surplus land has been lying unused since the acquisition. The land is estimated to fetch Rs 6,150 crore to the exchequer.

The demerger of 773.13 acres, spread over at least five locations including Delhi, Chennai and Pune, was proposed to be carried out through HPIL, a special purpose vehicle formed through a Cabinet decision in 2005.

The DoT has proposed Government taking 51.12 per cent stake in Hemisphere Properties Ltd.
