NTPC ties up 50 bn yen funding under JBIC's GREEN initiative


New Delhi, Oct 28 (IANS): In the first funding for NTPC Ltd under Japan Bank for International Co-operation (JBIC)'s GREEN or Global Action for Reconciling Economic growth and Environment preservation initiative, India's largest power producer on Wednesday entered into foreign currency loan agreement with Japanese financial institution for JPY 50 billion (approx $ 482 million/Rs 3,582 crore).

JBIC will provide 60 per cent of the facility amount and the balance will be given by commercial banks (viz., Sumitomo Mitsui Banking Corporation, the Bank of Yokohama Ltd, the San-In Godo Bank Ltd, the Joyo Bank Ltd, and The Nanto Bank Ltd), under the JBIC's guarantee.
