The release detailed that – based on the current assessment of prevailing and evolving liquidity conditions, the RBI has decided to conduct the sale of government securities under OMO for an aggregate amount of Rs 100 billion on Thursday, September 28, 2017 through multi-security auction using the multiple price method.
