“HDFC Bank Limited acting through GIFT City IFSC Banking Unit has completed the issue of 750 Million US$ Senior Unsecured Bonds,” said the bank in its regulatory filing.

HDFC Bank said it will be paying a coupon of 5.686 per cent.  The USD denominated senior unsecured instruments will have a three year maturity, with settlement on 2 March 2023, and the maturity on 2 March 2026, according to an exchange filing.

HDFC, which is in the process of merging itself with the bank, offered to pay a coupon of 7.97% for the 10-year bonds. That compares with the benchmark bond, which is trading at around 7.36%.
