In an exchange filing, the company said it will launch one or more QIPs or offer for sale of equity shares or a combination of similar offers to raise $2 billion.
The board of Bharti Airtel on December 4 approved a plan to raise up to $3 billion via debt and equity route.

Of the aforementioned amount, $2 billion will be raised via a qualified institutional placement (QIP). The remaining amount would be raised through the issuance of foreign currency convertible bonds (FCCBs) or other similar security denominated in foreign currencies and through redeemable non-convertible debentures along with warrants or other similar rupee-denominated security.
