Adani Realty, the luxury residential and commercial property arm of the leading multinational conglomerate Adani Group, is in advanced talks for a merger with Mumbai-based DB Realty, according to a report by business daily The Hindu BusinessLine.

The merger could be one of India’s largest real-estate deals and is likely to pave way for Adani Realty's listing on the bourses. DB Realty is a listed company and after the merger it would be renamed as Adani Realty, as per the report.

Moneycontrol could not independently verify the report.

The merger deal would clear the decks for the back-door listing of Adani Realty on the stock exchanges. Adani is likely to infuse more funds into DB Realty, which would result into a fresh equity issuance to new investors. This comes after DB Realty’s talks with Godrej Properties did not go forward.
