State-run power giant NTPC said it has offered 2.74 crore equity shares to its employees at a discounted price of Rs 159.60 per scrip.
The discounted price was fixed after factoring in 5 per cent discount to the cut off price of Rs 168, discovered through the Offer For Sale of equity shares of NTPC carried out by the government on August 29-30.
