On Friday, IndiGo shares were down 2.02% to close at ₹2,113 apiece on NSE.

Gangwal said sometime in the future, he might consider participating again as board member.

I have been a long-term shareholder in the company for more than 15 years and it’s only natural to someday think about diversifying one’s holdings, Gangwal said in his resignation letter.He added that his current intention is slowly reduce my equity stake in the company “over the next five plus years”. 

While new investors should benefit from the potential future growth in the company’s share price, a gradual reduction of my stake should also allow me to benefit from some of the upside, Gangwal said.

However, Gangwal said that he is concerned about the optics of reducing the holdings even though such transactions would only be undertaken when he do not have any unpublished price sensitive information.
