The plan also comprises a green shoe option of up to USD 300 million, NTPC said in a declaration.
NTPC Ltd is planning to nurture funds by way of a term loan from the international markets to finance its capital expenditure, it said.
It said the company plans to raise "JPY (Japanese Yen) currency equivalent to USD 100 million plus green shoe option of up to USD 300 million."
