MUMBAI : State Bank of India (SBI) on Friday said its board has approved a proposal to raise up to 50,000 crore this fiscal year through various debt instruments.

India’s largest bank intends to raise the funds by issuing long-term bonds, Basel III-compliant Additional Tier 1 (AT-1) bonds, and Basel III-compliant Tier 2 bonds, in private placements to either Indian or overseas investors, subject to government approval, wherever required. The state-run lender’s central board approved raising the funds either in rupees or any other convertible currency, it said in an exchange filing.

On Monday, SBI announced that its board would meet on 9 June to discuss the fundraising proposal. The bank’s total capital adequacy ratio stood at 14.68%, as against 12.1% required under regulatory norms. While SBI’s AT-1 ratio was at 1.79%, its tier two ratio was at 2.62%.

In the quarter ended March, SBI clocked an 83% rise in net profit om a year earlier to 16,694.5 crore. Net interest income (NII) during Q4 FY23 rose 29.5% to 40,392 crore. The bank’s domestic net interest margin (NIM) increased 44 basis points (bps) from a year earlier to 3.84%. Operating profit during the quarter grew 24.9% to 24,621 crore.
