GMR Infrastructure raises Rs 200 cr from ICICI Bank Mumbai: GMR Infrastructure on Wednesday said it has raised Rs 200 crore through allotment of secured non-convertible debentures to ICICI Bank Ltd.

"... The debenture allotment committee of the board of directors of the company has allotted 2,000 secured non-convertible debentures of face value of Rs 10,00,000 each, aggregating to Rs 200 crore to ICICI Bank on May 16, 2012," it said in a filing to the BSE.

This is the second such fund raising from ICICI Bank by the Hyderabad-based infrastructure firm in the last 3 months.
