Tata Sons is planning to raise $2-2.5 billion for its digital business, as it works on the launch of its super app.

Tata Sons chairman N Chandrasekaran had met global investors during his visit to the US in May, The Economic Times reported.

The conglomerate might initially raise funds from private equity firms, and then look for strategic investors after scaling up the business, the report said.

"The reason behind investing in Curefit was that Tata will get to bring on board Bansal as they push their fundraising efforts and make him the face to bring in technology investors," a source told The Economic Times.

Tata Digital's board will be reconstituted with Chandrasekaran as chairman after the fundraising takes place, officials said.
