The Competition Commission has approved the deal involving global investment company Blackstone and realty firm Embassy Group. The deal involves a restructuring of Embassy Group, Blackstone Group and certain third parties into Embassy office parks Real Estate Investment Trusts (REIT).

In a tweet on December 6, the CCI said it "approves the acquisition of real estate assets of Embassy Group and Blackstone Group by Embassy".

Post-deal, Embassy Office Parks REIT will undertake an initial public offer and list its units on recognised stock exchanges in India, the CCI said.

SEBI had notified REITs and InvITs Regulations in 2014, allowing setting up and listing of such trusts which are very popular in some advanced markets.

Embassy group is one of the leading real estate developers in the country. It has developed over 45 million sq ft of prime residential and commercial projects.
