MUMBAI – Indian Bank was the lone issuer of certificates of deposit today, raising 14 bln rupees at 7.24% through papers maturing on Apr 5. 

 

The state-owned lender tapped the market for its funding needs and also due to strong growth for credit, dealers said. With the pace of growth in credit almost double that in deposits, banks continue to rely on the short-term debt market to meet the demand for credit.

 

According to the latest data from the Reserve Bank of India, advances in the banking system rose 17.45% on year to 131.07 trln rupees in the fortnight ended Dec 2. Deposits continued to lag credit growth, growing 9.85% on year to 175.24 trln rupees as on Dec 2.

 

The credit growth has been on an uptrend, with wholesale and retail contributing to the same. Credit for the services sector accelerated primarily due to a rise in non-banking financial companies and trade segments, CareEdge said in a report.

 

On the other hand, there were no issuances of commercial papers in the primary market today due to low market participation.

 

Some market participants stayed on the sidelines, with most of them on leave due to Christmas week and ahead of New Year.

 

On Friday, companies had raised 8.00 bln rupees.

 

Some companies also remained on the sideline as they weren’t in immediate need of funds, and a few companies have already rolled over papers set to mature in the next few days.

 

Rates on short-term debt papers were steady because of lower issuances in primary market, dealers said.

 

Rates on three-month CPs issued by non-banking finance companies were quoted at 7.15-7.40%, while rates on papers of manufacturing companies were quoted at 6.90-7.15%.

 

Rates on three-month CDs were quoted at 6.85-7.10%.

 

Rates on short-term debt are likely to remain in a narrow range in coming days due to lack of significant domestic cues.
