HDFC Bank has welcomed the Centre government’s approval for its proposal of raising Rs 24,000-crore capital. 

The decision comes against the backdrop of an expected pick-up in credit growth driven by consumption-led demand and a recovery in the investment cycle, according to a statement issued by the HDFC on Wednesday. 

“We are delighted to hear that the government has approved our capital raising proposal. The additional capital will go a long way in supporting our growth plans over the next few years, especially in semi-urban and rural India,” said PareshSukthankar deputy managing director, HDFC Bank in the statement. “We do believe this decision bodes well for the overall investment climate and foreign inflows as well.”
