India's largest realty firm DLF is in advance stage of discussion to sell luxury hospitality business Amanresorts for around $350 million (about Rs 1,900 crore) and the deal may be finalised next month.

Recently, DLF sold 17 acres of prime land in Mumbai to Lodha Developers for Rs 2,700 crore (Rs 27 billion) -- almost four times higher than the price it had paid in 2005 -- as part of the company's strategy to exit from non-core business and cut debt that stood at Rs 22,680 crore (Rs 226.8 billion) as on June 30.
