PNB Housing Finance has raised $100 million (Rs 690 crore) from International Finance Corporation, a member of the World Bank Group, for on-lending to buyers in affordable housing projects.
The investment was made under the central bank's automatic route in the revamped external commercial borrowings framework.
PNB Housing Finance is IFC's long-standing client. IFC assisted the company in raising its first foreign exchange financing for on-lending to buyers of affordable housing.
Later, IFC helped the company to issue the first green bond in India for financing construction of green buildings. The company is a member of IFC's Sustainable Housing Leadership Consortium that brings together leading developers, financiers, and the government to support the ecosystem for construction of green homes.
