Sale of SIL will reduce operating cost for IL&FS Group by nearly 19%.

The IL&FS Group on Wednesday completed the sale of a 73.69% stake in its education business, held under Schoolnet India (SIL), to Falafal Technologies (FTPL).

The Labour party has called on the government to intervene to prevent parts of the microchip designer Arm from being moved out of the UK if it is bought by the US chipmaker Nvidia.

Ed Miliband, the shadow business secretary, said the government should seek “legally binding assurances” from Nvidia that it would not move Arm’s headquarters out of Cambridge.

Arm, the UK’s most valuable tech company, could be sold by its owner, SoftBank, to Nvidia for more than $32bn (£25bn), according to reports that first emerged in July.

Arm designs chips that are adapted by manufacturers and used in most mobile phones as well as computers and, increasingly, devices connected to the “internet of things”.

Apple uses Arm-based chips in its iPhones, and in June it said it would move to Arm’s architecture for its Mac computers, in a blow to

The U.K.’s opposition Labour party said this week that an Arm takeover is not in the public interest and criticized the ruling Conservative Party for failing to protect the British chip designer — often hailed as one of the nation’s most innovative firms — from overseas predators.

Arm’s chips are used by companies around the globe to power millions of electrical devices. Apple uses them in iPhones and iPads, while Amazon uses them in Kindles, and car manufacturers use them in vehicles. The company has 6,000 staff globally and 3,000 of those are in the U.K.

Ed Miliband, the shadow business secretary, warned that an Arm takeover by a Silicon Valley firm would ultimately lead to U.K. jobs moving overseas.

A government spokesperson said that Downing Street monitors proposed acquisitions closely. “Where we feel a takeover may represent a threat to the UK,
