Equifax to raise stake in Indian subsidiary to 100%

Global data, analytics and technology company Equifax on Thursday said it will acquire 100 per cent stake in its Indian joint venture firm Equifax Credit Information Services Private Ltd (ECIS). Credit information company ECIS has operated as a joint venture between Equifax and leading Indian financial institutions, including State Bank of India, Bank of Baroda, Bank of India, Kotak Mahindra Prime Limited, Sundaram Finance Limited and Union Bank of India since 2010, Equifax said in a statement.
