Goldman Sachs, Credit Suisse, Deutsche Bank and SBI Capital Markets are among seven merchant bankers selected to manage the stake sale in CIL. The government currently holds 90 percent stake in the company.

Shares will be alloted to CIL employees at 5 percent discount to the lowest cut-off price. A maximum of 10 percent of the offer will be kept for employees. The Disinvestment Department pared a plan to sell 10 percent stake in CIL to placate employee unions.

The five major trade unions representing the workers of Coal India have decided to go on a three-day strike from September 23. Finance Minister P Chidambaram had earlier tried to assuage the workers unions, saying the disinvestment proceeds from the coal behemoth would be invested in PSU banks.

CIL was listed on the bourses in 2010 after the government raised Rs 15,199 crore by selling 10 percent stake in the country's biggest initial public offering. The company has a cash balance of about Rs 60,000 crore. The government plans to garner Rs 40,000 crore this fiscal by way of disinvestment and CIL's stake sale would be the largest. So far, the government has raised over Rs 1,325 crore through PSU stake sales.
