The promoters who sold shares include Rahul Bajaj, Niraj Bajaj, Kumud Bajaj, Madhur Bajaj and Sanjivnayan Bajaj.
In 2008, the Bajaj brothers had reached an amicable settlement, bringing an end to the six-year dispute over the division of the family's business empire.
According to the agreement, Rahul Bajaj-led group, comprising Rahul, Shekhar, Madhur and Niraj, would exit Bajaj Hindusthan and Bajaj Consumer Care, which would be with Shishir Bajaj.
All other firms in the original Bajaj Group, including Bajaj Auto, Bajaj Electricals, Mukund, Bajaj Finserv, BHIL and Hercules Hoist, would be with the Rahul Bajaj-led group.
The Bajaj family feud first hit headlines in 2002, with Shishir accusing elder brother Rahul of trying to oust him from the chairmanship of Bajaj Sevashram, one of the group holding companies.
