    I afraid that, your Main Thread`s Comment is wrong.

    Please refer to following :

    Rs 5000 Million = Rs. 5000 x 10^6 = $ (5000/120) x 10^6

    = $ 41.7 x 10^6 = Approximately 42 Million US $ = 1 M US $ per kiloMeter.

    I am not allowed to comment on Main Thread and that is the reason why, I posted it here.

    Under proper conditions, NSB should have massed millions of shares when those were cheaper.

    They should pay a premium price only when they buy the whole company and not only for buying 13% of the company.

    In an hostile take over they may pay extra cash for shares in order to make the share holders happy.

    In this case, they have bought only 13% share of the company.

    Why did they pay extra ?
