Short-Term Debt: CD issuances top 100 bln rupees; SBI major issuer

Informist, Tuesday, Jul 19, 2022


By Vishal Sangani


MUMBAI – Issuances of certificates of deposit crossed the 100-bln-rupee mark today, primarily because of large deals by the State Bank of India.


So far today, CDs aggregating 122.00 bln rupees were issued, as against 24.00 bln rupees on Monday. The SBI has raised 100.00 bln rupees through papers maturing on Oct 3 at 5.39%.


The last time SBI tapped the CD market was in March. In February, the lender had tapped the short-term debt market for the first time in a decade, according to data compiled by Informist.


A few banks tapped the market for their funding needs and surplus liquidity also narrowed, dealers said.


Liquidity in the banking system is currently estimated to be in a surplus of over 1.70 trln rupees as against 2.14 trln rupees on Monday. Surplus liquidity in the banking system is the lowest since October 2019.


Surplus liquidity has narrowed due to payments for auctioned government bonds.


The surplus is expected to narrow further in the coming days due to outflows on account of goods and service tax payments.


Banks also raised funds as demand for credit picked up due to a rise in small-ticket loans, an increase in working capital loans, and a growth in retail loans.


As per the data from the Reserve Bank of India, the on-year growth in advances of Indian banks rose to a 34-month high of 13.29% in the fortnight to Jul 1 and advances rose by 2.31 trln rupees to 123.81 trln rupees. Banks’ advances had grown 12.06% on year in the previous fortnight.


Rates on CDs rose by five basis points due to a surge in issuances of such papers.


Rates on three-month CDs were up at 5.40-5.65% as against 5.35-5.60% on Monday.


Meanwhile, funds raised through commercial papers fell in the absence of big-ticket issuances today, dealers said.


So far today, CPs aggregating 13.50 bln rupees were issued, as against 52.00 bln rupees on Monday. Bajaj Finance was the major issuer, raising 10.00 bln rupees through papers maturing in three months at 5.65%.


On Monday, the National Bank for Agriculture and Rural Development had raised 41.50 bln rupees through CPs.


Hindustan Petroleum Corp today scrapped its plan to raise funds through 44-day paper as the bid rates they received were higher than what the company was willing to pay, a dealer said.


Rates on CPs were range-bound today due to lower issuances.


Rates on three-month CPs of non-bank finance companies were quoted at 5.70-5.90%, while those on papers of manufacturing companies were quoted at 5.50-5.70%.
