------------------------------

Its board had last September announced a plan to raise Rs 250 bn but investors have not been forthcoming in the absence of government support.

Birla's letter highlighted the need for urgent measures from the government while offering to give up control of the company.

  • 'It is with a sense of duty towards 270 m Indians connected by VIL, I am more than willing to hand over my stake in the company to any entity-public sector/government/domestic financial entity or any other that the government may consider worthy of keeping the company as a going concern,' Birla said in his letter.

Birla owns over 27% stake in VIL, while Vodafone Public limited company (Plc) holds over 44%.

The current market capitalisation of VIL is over Rs 240 bn.

The two promoters have decided against infusing fresh funds in the company. Vodafone Plc has already written off all its investment in VIL following continuous losses.

Vodafone Idea share price ended the day down by 0.7% on the BSE.

Speaking of stocks, here's a pattern that if you see, you must sell your position. After all, exits are more important than entries.

In the chart below, we can see the head and shoulder pattern - the stock goes up, makes a high, falls a little bit, goes up to a higher high, does not make a higher low, rallies again, fails to make a new high, and then starts to break down.

This usually happens in a situation where a stock or index has typically been in a bull trend for a while. Spotting this correctly can help you save money.

If you're interested in trading and want to know how you can use this pattern, you can read about it in one of the editions of Profit Hunter here: It's When You Sell that Counts
