Bengaluru: ESOPDhan co-founder Nitin Agarwal, an angel investor, has said he expects the upcoming Union Budget to reduce the holding period of ESOP shares of unlisted companies from two years to one year for purposes of capital gain.
"This would make ESOPs a more attractive tool to retain and reward employees, especially among startups that are today seen as major job creators," Agarwal said.
ESOPDhan, the financial services firm that has lent about Rs 20 crore to 15 Bengaluru and Hyderabad based employees of US-based high growth tech companies to exercise their vested ESOPs is looking to build a loan book of Rs500 crore by 2025.
