Adani Transmission Ltd (ATL) has plans to raise Rs 500 crore through offshore rupee-denominated Masala bonds.

“Moody’s Investors Service has assigned a provisional (P) Baa3 rating to the notes…The proceeds of the notes, will be utilised in accordance with the guidelines issued by the RBI,” it said.
