Government-owned power sector lender Power Finance Corp Ltd is looking to buy a stake in a state-run bank and also plans to set up a private equity fund jointly with Tata Capital.

"We are looking to buy a substantial stake in a PSU (public sector unit) bank which will allow us to have a representation at the board level," the company's Managing Director Satnam Singh told reporters.

The state-run lender for power projects has sent a letter to the power and the finance ministries expressing its interest in buying a stake in any state-run bank a month ago, Singh said.
