L&T is planning to take over Healthquarters, in line with the company’s plans to enter the general insurance business, said sources close to the developments

Engineering giant Larsen & Toubro Ltd (L&T) is likely to take over Healthquarters India Pvt Ltd from Paramount Health group, said sources close to the developments.

This could be L&T’s first step towards entering the general insurance business, the sources said, adding that the deal has been almost finalised and a formal declaration from both the companies is awaited.

L&T officials, however, declined to comment on the developments. In a mail to Moneylife, a spokesperson of the company said,”L&T does not comment on any market speculation.”
