India has selected seven banks including Goldman Sachs and Deutsche Bank to manage a five percent government stake divestment in state miner Coal India Ltd, two sources with direct knowledge of the situation said.


At the current market price, the Coal India stake sale will raise about RS 79 billion for the government, which is struggling with a record high current account deficit (CAD), growing fiscal pressures and a slowing economy.

The share sale could be launched in October depending on the market conditions, the sources said.
