NEW DELHI: Public sector lender Canara Bank has raised Rs 3,000 crore by issuing Basel-III compliant tier-II bonds to augment capital base and fund growth.

"The bank has successfully raised Rs 3,000 crore under Basel-III compliant tier-II bonds with a coupon of 8.40 per cent per annum," Canara Bank said in a BSE filing today.

The issue was opened on April 18, 2016 and closed on April 27, 2016. Earlier this month, Canara Bank had said it would come out with the issuance of bonds to augment capital resources.
