* Shares in IVRCL Ltd slumped 8.9 percent on Tuesday,
bringing its monthly fall so far to 28.5 percent, on continued
speculations that the construction firm was facing funding
challenges.
* IVRCL shares fell even as a senior executive told a TV news
channel the company was looking to raise 4 billion rupees
($74.20 million) by the end of March by selling assets.
* "Funding shortage is there, but we have already initiated the
sale of some assets," said R Balarami Reddy, chief financial
officer of IVRCL, in an interview to news channel ET Now.
* "Once it comes to the final stage we will announce."
