The development comes at a time when PNB Housing Finance is looking to raise up to Rs 2,000 crore through “limited preference" route, a source was quoted as saying in the Mint report. Besides Goldman Sachs, PremjiInvest and the Munjal family, two of its existing shareholders, private equity firms General Atlantic and Carlyle, will also infuse funds into the mortgage lender, the report added.
