ReligareFinvest Ltd. plans to raise 6.5 billion Indian rupees by way of ashare sale as it aims to boost its capital adequacy ratio to reach regulatoryrequirements, Mint reported Sept. 30,citing "two people close to the development."

The company's capital adequacy ratio is below 10%. UnderReserve Bank of India requirements, large, deposit-taking nonbanking financialcompanies should have capital adequacy ratios of 15%.
