After the success of the first round of Bharat Bond ETF, the government plans to launch the second tranche of Bharat Bond ETF in July seeking to raise Rs.14,000 crore. The two new Bharat Bond ETF series will have maturities of April 2025 and April 2031. The base issue size of the ETF is Rs.3000 crore, with a green shoe option of Rs.11,000 crore depending on the market response. The idea here is to create a ladder of Bharat Bond ETFs across various maturities on the yield curve. This will provide more options for investors to match their investment needs with different time horizons. Edelweiss MF has the mandate.

Bharat Bond ETF invests in constituents of the NIFTY BHARAT Bond Indices, consisting of AAA rated PSUs. Unlike other government ETFs, where investors can invest in equity shares of diverse government PSUs, Bharat Bond ETF allows investors to take exposure to a portfolio of debt papers of government PSUs. Issue 1 had raised Rs.12,400 crore.
