NHPC Board Approves Plan To Raise Rs 2,500 Crore


State-owned hydro power giant NHPC Ltd. on Tuesday said its board has approved a proposal to raise up to Rs 2,500 crore through bonds, loans or external commercial borrowings.

NHPC’s board, in its meeting, approved the proposal to raise debt up to Rs 2,500 crore in 2019-20 through secured, redeemable, taxable, non-cumulative non-convertible taxable corporate bonds in one or more series or tranches on private placement basis and/or raising of term loans or inter-corporate loans or ECBs, according to a stock exchange filing.
