Another Auction Devolved On Primary Dealers


A rise in goods and services tax collections for July could provide a boost to Indian assets including bonds, India Gross GST Collections came in at INR 1.16t in July, up from INR 928.5bn in June.

  • Bonds could come under some pressure today after another auction was rescued by primary dealers; of the INR 110bn of the 5.63% 2026 bond dealers took INR 74.7bn. The 5.63% 2026 line also suffered a weak auction on July 2 and INR 104bn of INR 110bn sold was devolved on primary dealers. This has led commentators to speculate that the RBI is targeting the 5-Year and 10-Year sector to anchor the rest of the curve.
