NEW DELHI: Diversified group ITC today said its scheme for demerger of the non-engineering business of its subsidiary Wimco Ltd, for the merger with itself, has been given a go-ahead by the courts.
 
"...the Scheme of Arrangement between Wimco Ltd (Wimco) and the Company and their respective shareholders for demerger of the Non-Engineering Business comprising Safety Matches Business and Agri (Forestry) Business of Wimco into the Company (the Scheme), has been sanctioned by the Hon'ble High Court of Judicature at Bombay and the Hon'ble High Court at Calcutta," ITC Ltd said in a filing to the BSE.
