The government borrowed a total of Tk 8.103 billion (810.30 crore) Sunday through the auctions of treasury bills. On the other hand, Tk 6.94 billion will be injected into the market in the week due to maturity of some treasury bills. It will result in a net outflow of Tk 1.163 billion from the market in the week.
The net outflow of cash from the market is expected to increase pressure on liquidity, the fund managers said.
