Government bonds (G-secs) are now listed on the exchanges


#1

Government bonds (G-Secs) have started trading in the cash market segment from today.

To add a security to your marketwatch, just search by the first 3 digits of the bond. For example, if you want to add the 7.17GS2028 bond to your marketwatch, you will have to search for “717”.

If you have invested in G-Secs, you can now directly sell them on the exchanges. There isn’t much liquidity in these securities, but this should hopefully pickup with more auctions and penetration.

Note: Only long-dated bonds are listed and not T-bills. If you have invested in T-bills and want to exit, then you will have to hold them till maturity.
