“CCI India approves combination of Linde and Praxair, subject to compliance of certain modifications,” the regulator said in a tweet.

As previously disclosed, Both Linde and Praxair would hold approximately 50 percent of the new holding company that will adopt the Linde name and have a market value in excess of $65 billion.

The combined company would be governed by a single board of directors with equal representation from Linde and Praxair.

In a statement on Friday, Linde and Praxair said that the combination remains subject to timely approval by requisite government regulators and authorities under applicable competition laws.
