The company plans to raise up to Rs 5,000 crore by allotting equity shares, ADRs (American Depository Receipts), GDRs (Global Depository Receipts), FCCBs (Foreign Currency Convertible Bonds) or NCDs (Non Convertible Debentures) with warrants and such other securities.

It is also proposed to reappoint Vinod R Tanti and Rajiv Ranjan Jha as Directors of the company in the annual general meeting scheduled later this month.

The board has also proposed to approve variation in the terms of Special Employee Stock Option Plan 2014 for employees of the company and its subsidiary company(ies).

Shareholders will also vet the proposal to issue equity shares to the eligible employees of the company and subsidiaries under Employee Stock Option Plan 2015.
