The public sector bank however did not give any indication as to whether it would be raised by diluting government equity or issuing Additional Tier-1 (AT1) bonds.
The decision in this regard would be taken in the board meeting on September 27, PNB said in a filing to the stock exchanges.
The bank would consider raising "common equity Tier capital up to Rs 5,000 crore as per Basel III requirements," it said.
PNB had reported over 12 per cent rise in net profit at Rs 343.40 crore for the quarter ended June 30, 2017.
Total income of the bank rose to Rs 14,468.14 crore in the said quarter from Rs 13,475.41 crore a year ago.
