Capital infusion by the government, whether direct or via the bonds, will meet our requirements initially and further if we get some additional capital, that will be used for our growth, he said.

He hopes to come out of prompt corrective action (PCA) in 12-15 months, he added.

We have a requirement of around Rs 4,000 crore for the current financial year and we have got Rs 1,375 crore in December. We have plans to go to the capital market through qualified institutional placement (QIP), around Rs 500 crore should be the amount, said Takkar.
