The board approved the raising of equity capital not exceeding Rs 6,000 crore in tranches through various methods, such as a public issue, further public offer, rights issue, or Qualified Institutional Placement (QIP), according to a regulatory filing by Union Bank of India. This capital-raising effort is subject to the approval of the government, other regulatory authorities, and shareholders.
