GR Infraprojects has filed preliminary papers with capital markets regulator Sebi to raise Rs 800-1,000 crore through an initial share sale, merchant banking sources said on Tuesday.

The issue will be a complete Offer for Sale (OFS) of 1,15,08,704 equity shares by promoter and investor selling shareholders, according to the draft red herring prospectus.

The offer includes an employee reservation portion as well.

Those offering shares in the OFS include Lokesh Builders, Jasamrit Premises, Jasamrit Fashions, Jasamrit Creations, Jasamrit Construction and India Business Excellence Fund.

This is the third time when the company approached Sebi for launching an initial public offering (IPO).

Prior to that, in September 2016 as well, the company had filed IPO papers with Sebi and received the regulator's go-ahead to launch the public issue. It, however, did not go in for the public issue then.
