Institutional investors put in bids worth Rs 976 crore on Tuesday for buying government's part stake in state-owned miner National Mineral Development Corporation (NMDC).

The government had originally planned to sell 1.5 percent stake in the company, with a green-shoe option to retain an equal quantum.

Based on the response from institutional buyers, however, it has decided keep the issue size at 2.52 percent, according to a Finance Ministry official.
