The bank expects to raise around Rs 8 billion through sale of its stake in non-banking finance company - STCI Finance - and in Sidbi, by the third quarter of the current financial year.

The lender has also lined up some of its real estate assets to sell and expects to raise nearly Rs 2 billion through the sale, a source said.

The lender holds 29.96 per cent stake in STCI Finance, while it owns 2.84 per cent in Sidbi.

"The bank is planning to sell its entire stake in STCI Finance. It expects to raise around Rs 5 billion from the deal," the source said.

The government-owned bank is hoping to raise another Rs 3 billion through the Sidbi deal, he said.

It has already appointed nine merchant bankers to scout for potential buyers.

Last year also, the public sector lender had planned to sell its stake in STCI Finance but dropped it after the bids received were below expectations.
