India: Idea seeks NCLT approval for Vodafone merger

 |  August 9, 2017

Idea Cellular has approached the National Company Law Tribunal (NCLT) in Ahmedabad, seeking its approval for the mobile company’s merger with Vodafone India and Vodafone Mobile Services.

Idea filed the application on Monday after the merger proposal received clearances from the Competition Commission of India and the Securities and Exchange Board of India, the company said in a notice to stock exchanges.
