Mumbai , March 20

Bharat Forge Ltd today informed that its new joint venture with China's FAW Group has been formally inaugurated.

Bharat Forge did not disclose the amount paid for its 52 per cent equity stake in the joint venture.

"We cannot disclose the amount due to confidentiality agreement," the Bharat Forge spokesperson said. The balance 48 per cent equity in the joint venture is with FAW. The facility was an existing one within FAW Group. It was spun off into a joint venture with FAW contributing the facility and Bharat Forge bringing in equity.
