The target was to raise Rs450bn while the maturity amount was Rs301bn.

Cut off yields stood at 20.1498% (unchanged) for 3 months, 19.9640% (-1bps) for 6 months, and 18.5400% (-41bps) for 12 months.

Total amount offered was Rs1.68tr, with the SBP receiving bids worth Rs236.71bn for 3 months, Rs997.21bn for 6 months, and Rs448.94bn for 12 months.
