Shareholders of HDFC Bank have approved to raise up to ₹50,000 crore through bonds to enhance capital base to fund its business growth.

The decision to this effect was taken in the Annual General Meeting concluded on Saturday.

“Approval of shareholders was obtained for the issue of unsecured perpetual debt instruments (part of additional tier I capital), tier II capital bonds and long term bonds (financing of infrastructure and affordable housing) on a private placement basis of an amount in aggregate not exceeding ₹50,000 crore,” HDFC Bank said in a regulatory filing on Sunday.
