Reliance Jio Infocomm today said it is planning to raise Rs 3,000 crore by issuing secured redeemable non-convertible debentures on private placement basis.

In May, the company had raised USD 750 million or about Rs 4,500 from consortium backed by Korea Trade Insurance Corporation to buy telecom equipment from Samsung Electronics and Ace Technologies.

The company in July had announced to raise Rs 4,500 crore through debentures.

Reliance Industries Limited (RIL) has already invested over Rs 1 lakh crore in its telecom venture Jio.

The company has plans to offer 4G service at a monthly charges of Rs 300-500 and start commercial service with 4G mobile phones priced as low as Rs 4,000 a unit.

The company is now present in all 29 states of India, with a direct physical presence in nearly 18,000 cities and towns, and covers over one lakh villages.

In addition, Jio has also built an optical fibre network comprising nearly 250,000 route kilometres of fibre optics.
