Infrastructure funding of $244 million is being discussed by NII

 Delhi, India: According to people familiar with the situation, India's National Investment & Infrastructure Fund is in talks to raise at least $244 million for an infrastructure investment trust.

The vehicle would incorporate a few resources from Athaang Framework, which works expressways, as indicated by one individuals, who declined to be recognized on the grounds that the data is private. Another person stated that the fund raising should take place by September and that the investment will be a private placement.

To address a deficit in infrastructure spending, India's first major effort to establish a domestic capital-raising structure is the NIIF. According to its website, Abu Dhabi Investment Authority and Temasek Holdings Pte. of Singapore are among its investors.

Similar to mutual funds, infrastructure investment trusts, or InvITs for short, enable the pooling of assets for project financing and can assist in making up for investment losses.

The country would need to invest $840 billion in urban infrastructure over the next 15 years, according to a World Bank report from last year.

Bloomberg's emails and messages requesting comments did not receive a response from NIIF. An email request was not answered by Athaang.
