National Highways Authority of India is seeking to raise up to Rs4,000 crore for its Infrastructure Investment Trust (InvIT), which is expected to speed up road asset acquisition by forming a new special purpose vehicle within the trust structure.

According to people familiar with the matter, half of the funds may be raised by selling units in the National Highway Infra Trust to existing investors such as Canadian pension funds CPPIB and OTPP, while the other half is likely to come from a public bond sale in the local market where retail investors can buy.

Existing offshore funds are not yet formally intimated about the plan.

"The plan for the two-legged fundraising has been laid out," stated sources. It is still in the early stages, with the sponsor, NHAI, preparing a roadmap.
