The terms of the transaction were not disclosed, however Shriram Housing Finance had announced plans to raise R75Cr from both PE investors and the promoters by diluting 20-22% stake.
Shriram Housing is the mortgage lending arm of Shriram Group. The housing finance business was started with an initial capital of around R15Cr. The company is engaged into asset backed lending, truck finance, personal finance, insurance and real estate.
