I Squared Capital did not disclose financial details of the deal in its statement on Monday.
 
IJM Corp said in a separate statement the deal value was 5.25 billion rupees ($84.9 million).
 
I Squared said it will initially buy a 74 percent stake in Jaipur Mahua Tollway Pvt Ltd from IJM through its ISQ Global Infrastructure Fund, and the remainder after getting approval from Indian authorities.
 
Jaipur Mahua Tollway is a toll road that helps connect Jaipur, known for its historic buildings, with Agra, home to the Taj Mahal.
 
The road has been operational since 2009 under a 25-year concession.
