The group is looking to repay the bridge loan with cash this month, the report said, the loan had a tenor of six months and was part of a larger $5.25 billion financing package.

The loan was underwritten by Barclays, Deutsche Bank and Standard Chartered, ET reported. The financial consortium lending to Adani also includes DBS, MUFG, Sumitomo Mitsui Banking Corp, First Abu Dhabi Bank, Intesa and Mizuho, the report said.
