India will sell an up to 5 percent stake in state-run Container Corp as part of the government's asset sales programme, in a deal that could fetch about $170 million.

The government, which owns 61.8 percent of Container Corp, is selling up to 9.75 million shares starting Wednesday at a floor price of 1,195 rupees ($17.76) per share, according to a regulatory filing.

Institutional investors can bid for the shares on Wednesday and Thursday in an auction on the stock exchanges, while retail investors can place bids on Thursday.

The government last month raised about $730 million from a share sale in power producer NTPC Ltd.
