The company said the financial details of the deal will be disclosed after the transaction gets all approvals.
DLF Pramerica Life Insurance Company is one of the two dozen Indian life insurers in which Prudential International Insurance, a unit of Prudential Financial Inc, owns 26 per cent, the maximum permissible foreign holding.
The stake sale in the joint venture is part of DLF's strategy to divest "non-core" assets to pare debt, a company statement said.
India's crowded life insurance sector has been battered by losses, regulatory changes and a sharp slowdown in economic growth, forcing many foreign and domestic players to exit their investments.
