Retail Investors (Category IV) and HNIs (Category III) have invested a total amount of around Rs. 1,468 crore, which is more than total NCD Issue size of Rs. 750 crore (including Greenshoe Option).

The success of our NCD Public Issue sets a new benchmark for a wholesale NBFC such as JMFCSL that provides integrated financial solutions to real estate developers with a focus on residential project financing. This is a testimony to the success of the transformational changes in the real estate sector and will further deepen the Indian debt markets inviting meaningful long term wider public participation in debt offerings from wholesale NBFCs.” Read more
