Mumbai: The Nasdaq-listed software company iGate Corp's Indian unit Patni Computer Systems Ltd will delist from the National Stock Exchange (NSE) of India Ltd on May 21.
"Securities of Patni Computer Systems will be suspended from trading on National Stock Exchange w.e.f.

Patni Computer was last year acquired by iGate Corp and later renamed to iGate Patni.

The company in January received shareholders' approval for delisting the company from the Indian stock exchanges and the New York Stock Exchange.
In 2011, iGATE had acquired the Mumbai-based Patni Computer for Rs 55.6 billion ($1.2 billion then). The deal was considered to be one of the largest acquisitions in the domestic information technology industry.
