In a filing to BSE, the telco said , “Pursuant to the approval of the Board of Directors and shareholders, the company proposes to issue secured redeemable non-convertible debentures aggregating up to Rs 750 crore, on private placement basis.

In May 2015, Jio has raised around Rs 4,500 crore from a consortium backed by Korea Trade Insurance Corporation to buy telecom equipment from Samsung Electronics and Ace Technologies.
