Public sector lender Canara Bank plans to raise up to Rs 3,000 crore in capital through additional tier I (AT1) and tier II bonds in second half (October 2022-March 2023) to support elevated growth in credit. The bank, which is looking to keep capital adequacy at 16 per cent and above level, has already raised Rs 6,000 crore via these instruments in the first half.
