The Birlas yesterday said that none of the families want
to buy the M.P. Birla family''s 25 per cent stake in Pilani
Investments, a holding company that owns shares in several
concerns of the group.
statement issued here on behalf of the entire Birla family
sought to "clarify issues raised and comments made
by the media regarding the purported will of the late
Priyamvada Birla". "We wish to clarify that
the M.P. Birla family holds about 25 per cent in Pilani
Investments. The other Birla families, i.e., K.K. Birla,
B.K. Birla, G.P.
Birla and S.K. Birla families together hold about 60 per
cent of the equity of Pilani Investments. Importantly,
none of the Birla families have any intent to buy the
M.P. Birla family''s stake in Pilani whatsoever. We hope
this will set to rest speculation in the media about Pilani
