The exact amount, the mode of capitalisation and other terms would be decided in consultation with the banks at the time of the infusion, it said.

For the year 2011-12, it said, additional capital requirements, if any, will be worked out in consultation with the PSBs based on their third quarter results for the year 2010-11.

The statement further said that infusion of Rs 15,000 crore in Tier I Capital Instruments of PSBs would enable them to expand their credit growth by about Rs 1,85,000 crore, it said.

This additional availability of credit is likely to benefit employment oriented sectors, especially agriculture, micro and small enterprises and entrepreneurs that in turn would contribute substantially to the growth of the economy, it said.
