The benchmark 10 year yields in the Indian bond markets shot up on the day of budget from 6.66% to 6.89%. This was triggered by a sharp spike in government borrowings for FY23 From Rs.12 trillion to Rs.14.9 trillion. That is a huge leap and will put pressure on yields. However, bulk of the fiscal deficit creation is passed to states, which is why yields tapered later.
