NEW DELHI: Gas Authority of India Limited (GAIL) will pay 242 million Honk Kong dollars for a nine percent stake in Chinese city-gas distributor China Gas Holdings.

GAIL will subscribe to 210 million new shares of the Hong Kong-based firm at 1.158 HK dollars per share, China Gas said in a press release.

GAIL has also agreed not to sell the shares for two years.
