Dabur’s Burman family has picked up an additional stake in Religare Enterprises Ltd (REL) which will bring the family’s shareholding close to 22%, Mohit Burman, Dabur chairman, who is invested in Religare in his personal capacity, said in an emailed response.

“We bought approximately 2.4 crore shares which is 7%. This bring our total shareholding close to 22%," Burman said, adding that this is a financial investment for the Burman family.

The shares were traded at 217.95 apiece, according to the BSE. This puts the size of the deal at around 534 crore.
