HDFC to issue NCDs, hopes to raise Rs 35,000 crore
Housing finance major HDFC on Monday said it will raise Rs 35,000 crore through secured redeemable non-convertible debentures (NCDs).
"The board approved the issuance of secured redeemable NCDs aggregating to Rs 35,000 crore on a private placement basis under a shelf disclosure document in terms of the SEBI (Issue and Listing of Debt Securities) Regulations 2008," the company said in a regulatory filing.
