LIC-owned IDBI Bank on February 3 said it has raised Rs 745 crore through issue of Basel III compliant tier 2 bonds which will help improve its capital position. The 10-year bond was priced at a coupon rate of 9.50 per cent per annum payable annually, the bank said in a statement.

"The amount mobilised would be counted as part of tier 2 capital and enhance the capital adequacy of the bank," the statement said.

The bonds have a call option after five years.

The bids were opened on electronic bidding platform of BSE on January 31, and allotment to successful bidders closed on Monday.

In December, Parliament approved Rs 9,300 crore capital infusion in IDBI Bank.
