IIFL Home Finance plans to raise up to Rs 5,000 crore, to boost its lending business, through public issue of non-convertible debentures.

The company has filed a draft shelf prospectus with stock exchanges BSE and NSE for this public issue of bonds, IIFL Home Finance said on Monday.

The company will issue secured redeemable and/or unsecured subordinated redeemable non-convertible debentures (NCDs) for an amount aggregating up to Rs 5,000 crore, it said.

The face value of each secured and unsecured NCD will be Rs 1,000 each and will be issued in one or more tranches.

The company's main focus is to provide loans to the first time home buyers in the economically weaker section and lower income segments in the suburbs of tier 1, tier 2 and tier 3 cities.

The company said over 85 per cent of its housing loans have been sourced digitally in the last financial year 2021.
