Troubled mortgage lender Dewan Housing Finance (DHFL) has sought Rs 15,000-crore immediate funding from banks for on-lending to retail customers as well as to project developers, say sources.
Last week, the nearly crippled company had submitted a draft resolution plan to lenders which are yet to be approved by them.
"The company has asked for an additional funding of Rs 15,000 crore. The money will be used to fund viable projects that are stuck due to lack of money," said one of the sources.
When contacted, a DHFL spokesperson said it did not have any comment to offer apart from what it has informed the stock exchanges last week on the draft resolution plan.
