NTPC is looking to raise Rs.15,000 crore through issuance of bonds. These funds will be raised through private placement of NCDs in one or more tranches. The funds would be used predominantly for capital expenditure and also for working capital needs.

NTPC also plans to embark in new business areas like e-mobility, waste-to-energy, sea water desalination etc. NTPC will be venturing into these segments in a big way. This is expected to de-risk the business model of NTPC and also provide better operating margins.
