The issue of new securities to existing shareholders at a ratio to those already held, at a price. For e.g. a 1:2 rights issue at Rs. 100, would entitle a shareholder to receive 1 shares for every 2 shares held at a price of Rs. 100 per share. Similar concept can be applied for 2:3 or any kind of proportion.
