Bandhan, which transformed itself from a micro-finance institution (MFI) to a bank, is seeking to shore up its deposit base as it could not do so in its erstwhile form.  Ghosh said existing equity investors like SIDBI, IFC and GIC Sovereign Fund of Singapore would jointly put in Rs 500 crore as additional capital in the bank. Ghosh said existing equity investors like SIDBI, IFC and GIC Sovereign Fund of Singapore would jointly put in Rs 500 crore as additional capital in the bank.
