The couple have parted amicably as befits two people of stature. Further, as far as the two listed companies -Blow Plast and VIP Industries are concerned, there will be no division of assets. Dilip Piramal will continue to be in charge of both of them, sources familiar with the development said.
Gita Piramal has joined the board of another group company, BP Ergo, where daughter Aparna is an executive director. Sources, however, indicated that Ms Piramal could however get a share of the pie in the unlisted companies, but declined to say anything further.
It is learnt that the 56-year-old Dilip Piramal is getting married to 42- year old Shalini Agarwal later this month.
