New Delhi: Infrastructure Development Finance Corporation (IDFC) will raise Rs12,000-14,000 crore debt in the current fiscal from the domestic debt market to fund infrastructure projects in the country.
“The money will be used for funding infrastructure projects in sectors like ports, roads, logistics and telecom,” IDFC CEO Rajiv Lall told reporters here.
The borrowing plan would depend on market conditions, he said, adding that the company would raise resources as and when there is a need.
On infrastructure financing, Lall said the excitement in the infrastructure sector is likely to continue in the coming years.
The company expects balance sheet size to grow by 30-35% during the fiscal.
Advances are likely to see a growth of 30% in the current fiscal, he said, adding that the loan disbursal target is Rs6,000-7,000 crore.
The company recently raised $500 million through equity.
On the $5-billion infrastructure fund it has set up with Citigroup, IIFCL and Blackstone, Lall said the first closure of the fund would happen by October end.
Meanwhile, IDFC and Feedback Ventures signed an MoU with the United States Agency for International Development (USAID) for promotion and development of new water and sanitation projects in urban areas.
