Here is the edited transcript of the interview on CNBC-TV18.

Q: There was a lot of news that L&T was looking to acquire stake. Can you confirm the fact that they have indeed gone ahead with this?

A: Already they have nearly 10 percent stake. Only thing is they were holding it in one of their finance companies. They must have transferred it to L&T. It is not that they have bought any new stake.

Q: There is no fresh additional buy that they have done?

A: Yes.

Q: Any talks of them acquiring further stake in the company?

A: No.

Q: Where is the promoter stake currently at? Earlier there was so much talk about L&T upping their stake because the promoter stake stands quite low at about 20 percent or so? What is the promoter stake currently?

A: Yes, near about 20 percent.

Q: Are you looking at augmenting your own stake in the company?

A: Yes.

Q: By when would that be?

A: Maybe in another 3-4 months.

Q: Is there any possibility of L&T becoming a strategic investor in your company? Any possibility of them upping their stake further?

A: They had an eye, but I am not sure about when it will happen. But, they have an eye on the company.

Q: So currently their stake still stands at about 9.6 percent?

A: Yes, slightly less than that.
