State Bank of India, the country's largest public sector bank, announced on Wednesday, June 19, that its board has approved a plan to raise up to 20,000 crore through long-term bonds in the financial year 2024-25.

In January, SBI raised 5,000 crore through perpetual bonds at a coupon rate of 8.34 per cent. In the previous financial year, the bank raised a total of 20,000 crore by issuing 15-year infrastructure bonds.

Earlier this month, SBI also raised $100 million through its London branch by selling three-year senior unsecured floating-rate bonds, priced at a spread of 95 basis points above the secured overnight financing rate (SOFR).

Indian banks have been bolstering their capital base to meet the increasing demand for loans. Several state-run lenders, including Canara Bank and Punjab National Bank, plan to raise funds through debt issuance this fiscal year.
