New Delhi: Real estate developer Assotech today said it will raise Rs 75 crore from private equity firm Sun-Apollo India Real Estate Fund by selling 49 per cent stake in a housing project in Gurgaon.
“We will divest 49 per cent stake in a project to Sun-Apollo to raise Rs 75 crore. This investment is only for a specific group housing project in Gurgaon,” Assotech Managing Director Sanjeev Srivastava said.
The National Capital Region-based company is developing the project — Assotech Blith – in a 12-acre land, he added.

He said the total estimated project cost of ‘Assotech Blith’ is around Rs 500 crore.
The money coming from Sun-Apollo will be a foreign direct investment to the project.
“This FDI for our project in NCR will allow us to enter highly respected and profitable real estate market in Haryana,” Srivastava said.
