MUMBAI – Issuances of commercial papers by non-bank finance companies rose today due to funding requirements and also as they rolled over papers set to mature in coming days, dealers said.
So far today, CPs worth 30.25 bln rupees have been issued, of which NBFCs raised 29.50 bln rupees. National Bank for Agriculture and Rural Development was the major issuer, raising 20 bln rupees through papers maturing in five months at 5.65%.
On Friday, CPs aggregating 15.95 bln rupees were issued.
Issuances by manufacturing companies were lower today due to low requirement for funds and also as they had borrowed heavily last week, dealers said.
CP issuances are expected to remain firm in the coming days as companies may tap the market to roll over papers that are set to mature in the comings days. During Jan 20-31, CPs to the tune of 705.16 bln rupees are set to mature, according to data compiled by Cogencis.
Rates on short-term debt papers were unchanged today due to steady demand from mutual funds, dealers said.
Rates on CPs of non-bank finance companies maturing in March were quoted at 5.40-5.55%, and those on manufacturing companies of the same maturity were in the range of 5.20-5.25%.
Rates on CDs maturing at the end of March were at 5.15-5.30%.

IndusInd Bank was the lone issuer of certificates of deposit today. The private bank raised 4.5 bln rupees, dealers said.
On Friday, CDs worth 20.0 bln rupees were issued.
