It is expected that strategic buyer will infuse funds, new technology and best management practices for optimal development of business potential and growth of IDBI Bank Ltd and shall
generate more business without any dependence on LIC and Government assistance/funds. Resources through strategic disinvestment of Government equity from the transaction would be used to finance developmental programmes of the Government benefiting the citizens.
