“The Board of Directors of the Bank in its meeting held today i.e. 29 March, 2023 has approved raising of capital for an amount up to Rs.12000 Crore through Basel Ill Compliant AT-1fTier II Bonds (AT-1 Bonds up to Rs.7000 Crore and Tier- II Bonds up to Rs.5000 Crore), to be raised in one or more tranches," said PNB today in a stock exchange filing.

Punjab National Bank raised 974 crore at 8.75 per cent on March 24. 

Commenting on the technical outlook of the stock A R Ramachandran, Co-founder & Trainer-Tips2trades said "Even though since the past 3 years, PNB has been profitable, still compared to other quality PSU banks like SBI, PNB lacks consistency in terms of a cleaner & more consistent income statement &  balance sheet. Technically, PNB was oversold on the Daily charts and a close above resistance of 47.2 could lead to a target of 52 in the near term. Support will be at 44.5."
