ROME (Reuters) – Italian banks’s rescue plan for ailing lender Carige envisages a larger than planned cash call of up to 800 million euros ($911 million), a source close to the matter said on Tuesday.

The Genoa-based lender, which was placed under special administration by the European Central Bank in January, had been thought to have a capital shortfall of 630 million euros.
