(Indian Business Insight Via Acquire Media NewsEdge) A promoter group has invested Rs650 crore, the first instalment, in Reliance Communications (RCom).

This is half of the total of Rs1,300 crore the company is raising from promoters through preferential allotment of shares. RCom expects to receive the remaining amount by 31 Mar 2015. RCom will use the proceeds to reduce its high-cost rupee debt, which will help it make interest savings of more than Rs800 crore a year.
