New Delhi, Apr 4 (PTI) Reliance Power has got shareholders’ approval to raise up to Rs 2,000 crore by issuance of securities through Qualified Institutional Placement (QIP) for paring its debt.

A special resolution was passed by requisite majority to give adequate flexibility and discretion to the Board to finalise the terms of the QIP, it added.
