New Delhi: Tata Steel has raised USD 1.3billion (approx Rs 8,282 crore) through issuance of unsecured bonds in international markets.

“The issue comprises USD 300 million 4.45 per cent unsecured bonds due on July 24, 2023 and USD 1 billion 5.45 per cent unsecured bonds due on January 24, 2028 by Abja Investment Co Pte Ltd, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Tata Steel incorporated in Singapore,” Tata Steel said a regulatory filing.
