Gandhinagar: IndusInd Bank on Wednesday said that its GIFT City IBU branch has entered into a $100 million long-term loan agreement with the Japan Bank for International Cooperation (JBIC).

The funds thus raised, will be used by IndusInd Bank to foster the growth of Japanese construction equipment companies in India through need-based credit facilities to the upstream and downstream companies.

Mizuho Bank Ltd. Japan, the Shizuoka Bank Ltd. Singapore and the Joyo Bank Ltd. Japan will also co-finance in this facility.

Under this initiative, IndusInd Bank will provide credit facilities to companies that comprise the supply chain of the Japanese original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) in India.

Currently, the programme will cover the component suppliers and dealers of the selected Japanese OEMs, as well as the final buyers of the construction machinery manufactured by those companies.

IFSCA Chairperson Injeti Srinivas said, “We are pleased to note that IndusInd Bank GIFT City IBU has partnered with Japan Bank for International Cooperation (JBIC). The monies raised will be used for financing companies who are engaged in strengthening India’s Infrastructure. This is also in line with the IFSCA’s objective to make GIFT City a hub for raising long-term finance.”

MD & Group CEO GIFT City Tapan Ray said, “The long-term loan agreement between JBIC and IndusInd Bank’s IBU in GIFT City is indeed a positive move. It will act as a catalyst in securing funding for the component suppliers and dealers of the Japanese construction equipment companies in India, thereby boosting bilateral ties between India and Japan.”

GIFT City has witnessed significant growth across a spectrum of financial services, including banking and has emerged as a preferred destination for global and national banking entities to carry out their international operations.”

Commenting on the occasion, Managing Director & CEO, IndusInd Bank Sumant Kathpalia said, “IndusInd Bank’s Commercial Vehicles Finance Division is one of the largest financiers of Japanese OEMs in India and the Bank plans to build on the synergies by increasing our business share from the component suppliers and dealers who form the upstream & downstream supply-chain of the OEMs. The tie-up with JBIC marks an important milestone in the Bank’s activities in GIFT City and underlines the growing prominence of the Center GIFT City as an International Financial Hub of choice.”

Commenting on the occasion, JBIC Director General Kazushige Gobe stated, “The government of India announced PM Gati Shakti, the national infrastructure development plan for improving the country’s infrastructure connectivity. In materializing this plan, Japanese construction equipment manufacturers play an important role through the supply of construction equipment. We are convinced that the expanded local presence of Japanese high-quality construction equipment contributes to the accelerated improvement of infrastructure in India.”
