Power Grid Corp to raise up to Rs 2,250 crore via bonds to fund capex


The state-run Power Grid Corporation on Monday announced that its board has approved a proposal to raise up-to Rs 2,250 crore through the issuance of bonds to fund its capital expenditure. In a regulatory filing, the company stated that the Committee of Directors for Bonds, in their meeting held on September 25, 2023, approved raising up-to Rs 2,250 crore in the financial year FY24, in the second tranche.

The bonds are redeemable at par in 10 equal instalments, with interest payments on a yearly basis.


According to the filing, this fundraising will part-finance the company’s capital expenditure requirement, provide inter-corporate loans to wholly-owned subsidiaries/joint ventures, and serve general corporate purposes by securitising cash flows of four operational special purpose vehicles (SPVs) up to March 2034.
