Taking advantage of falling interest yields, the deal was finalised between the two companies over a short span, an official statement said.

The proceeds from the loan will also be utilsed partly to refinance costlier loan obtained from consortium of banks and financial institutions. In order to ease future cashflows, the loan also offers extended repayment period, it said.
