The company, which expects to set up an Euro Medium Term Note (EMTN) programme in the next 6-8 weeks, said it will appoint bankers for the offering by end-September, the source said.

The borrowing will be utilised for funding the power projects, including ultra mega power projects, financed by the company, the source added.
