According to the report, the tranches to the bank’s capital were paid in accordance with the agreement on its formation signed in July 2015 at BRICS summit in Ufa.
The contribution to the bank’s capital stock is made through paid up capital, which is directly transferred to NDB, and subscribed capital, which shareholders provide in case it’s needed.
Paid up capital is the key asset for the development bank, the report said. It is expected to total $10 bln to be paid through 7 tranches. Subscribed capital will total $40 bln.
