The committee of directors on capital raising in its meeting held on Monday approved and authorised the opening of the QIP on June 21, Indian Bank said in a regulatory filing.

In Q4 of last fiscal, the firm reported a standalone profit after tax of Rs 1,709 crore. The bank amalgamated Allahabad Bank with itself with effect from April 1, 2020. In the quarter ended March 2020, the amalgamated entity had reported a standalone net loss of Rs 1,641 crore.
