DLF Ltd, India's largest real estate developer by market value, sold two non-core assets worth Rs 147 crore, the company said on Tuesday, as part of its effort to pare debt.
DLF divested a majority stake in a subsidiary for Rs 79.8 crore and completed the sale of its wind turbines in Rajasthan for Rs 67.4 crore, the company said in two separate statements.
Like most developers, profits of New Delhi-based DLF have been hit by high interest rates and slowing home sales in Asia's third-largest economy which is growing at its slowest pace in a decade.
Founded by billionaire K.P. Singh, DLF has been struggling to sell non-core assets to pare its debt of 204 billion rupees at end-June, which it expects to reduce to 175 billion rupees by March 31.
