Housing Development Finance Corporation (HDFC) on Tuesday announced plans to raise up to Rs 35,000 crore by issuing bonds on a private placement basis.

The HDFC board of directors will seek approval of shareholders in the ensuing annual general meeting to be held on July 30. It will also declare the financial results for the first quarter ended June of the current fiscal on the same day.
