The move will increase the tenure of government debt with Treasury bills representing central bank credit being converted to overseas held bonds.

The Treasury will still be going ahead with an international bond raising.

"We need to find about 30 percent counterparty funds for some development projects," he said. The 875 million US dollar flow from a "US-based fund" will increase the maturity profile of government debt, Cabraal said.

"This is a result of a road show we did in the US recently," Cabraal said.

"Investors are expecting interest rates to fall further so they can lock in profits."

Government rupee bonds now yield about 13.0 percent.

Cabraal said total investments to rupee bonds would rise to the equivalent of about 1,250 million US dollars by Friday.
