MUMBAI: Hindustan Media Ventures Ltd (HMVL), which publishes Hindi news daily Hindustan, is planning to raise Rs 250 crore (Rs 2.50 billion) through issue of non-convertible debentures (NCDs) on private placement basis.

HMVL is also planning to acquire the trademarks—‘Hindustan’, ‘’, ‘Nandan’, ‘Kadambini’, ‘Hum Tum’, etc.—from parent company HT Media Ltd for Rs 62 crore (Rs 620 million).
