The government issued a new 10 year bond, which saw the cut off yield at 5.85%, higher than the 5.77% cut off yield seen in the auction of the previous 10 year benchmark bond, a couple of months ago. The yield of 5.85% is still low as the last time government bond yields went below 6% was in 2008-09 during the global financial crisis. However, the market is showing reluctance to bring down the bond yield despite RBI’s firm commitment to keep down the long bond yields through OMO purchases of around Rs 1.4 trillion including operation twists and SDL purchases.
