Sources added that these figures of borrowing were up to June 2016. An amount of $2.7 billion was paid as mark-up during the aforementioned three years. 

The external borrowing is used for balance of payment support, reducing domestic borrowing and fulfilling the foreign obligations.

The domestic debt, they added, is perpetual in nature and is constantly refinanced through new issues and three auctions are conducted per month in the market with one for investment bonds of various maturities (3 years or more) and two auctions for treasury bills (of maturities of 3,6, and 12 months). Participation in each auction ranges from Rs 100 billion to Rs 500 billion and accordingly the government refinances its domestic debt from domestic market as a standard practice.
