"The object of the issue is to augment the long-term resources of the corporation," it said, adding, ""The proceeds of the present issue would be utilised for financing/refinancing the housing finance business requirements of the corporation."

The secured redeemable Non-Convertible Debentures issue will open on October 11 and close the same day. The issue is part of company's Shelf Placement Memorandum "AA-series" aggregating to 75,000 crore that was approved by the mortgage lender's board in November 2021.

Earlier, the private sector giant HDFC Bank has extended its special fixed deposit scheme for senior citizens. Senior Citizen Care FD is a special-fixed deposit programme offered by HDFC Bank since May 18, 2020, with a higher interest rate benefit for senior citizens. However, due to the Covid-19 pandemic and the low-interest rate regime, the scheme was repeatedly extended and was set to expire on September 30, 2022.
