New Delhi: Larsen & Toubro board on Thursday approved the proposal to buy back six crore shares amounting to Rs 9,000 crore to reward its shareholders.

In a stock exchange filing, Larsen & Toubro (L&T) said its board has approved the proposal to buy back six crore shares at a maximum price of Rs 1,500 apiece.

The buyback price is at over 13 per cent premium to Tuesday's closing price of Rs 1,322.15 per share.
