Indiabulls Housing Finance's liquidity situation remained very strong as the company has raised around Rs 58,000 crore since September 2018 and has a cash buffer of Rs 28,000 crore, said Banga in an interview with CNBC-TV18. Banga added that Rs 11,000 crore has been invested in mutual funds.
“Since September last year, the sector has been facing challenges around liquidity, but what has the company done. The company has raised closed to Rs 58,000 crore since September 21, 2018 to date. These are fresh money which have come in through bank term-loans, securitization, through bonds,” said Banga.
