L&T Infrastructure Finance Company Ltd. (LTIF), a wholly owned subsidiary of L&T Finance Holdings Ltd., has received the first tranche of $50 million of the total $100 million ECB loan from Asian Infrastructure Investment Bank (AIIB), the company said in a statement.
“This development marks AIIB’s first loan to a non-banking financial company (NBFC) in India,” the company added. The loan proceeds will be used to on-lend to large and mid-scale wind and solar power infrastructure projects in India.
