Cash Management Bills (CMB) worth Rs 80000 cr announced…

RBI announced auction of CMBs worth Rs 80,000 cr to be held on 28-May-2020.

The issuance of CMB is done when WMA limits are breached.

This blog has been tracking WMA regularly and the position does not look good. It has become a continuous source of financing. It was a matter of time when the government will breach WMA limits and CMBs to be issued. We will have to wait for WSS data to ascertain whether WMA limits were breached in this weekly period.
