MUMBAI: The Reserve Bank of India said on Thursday said it will infuse ₹12,500 crore into the financial system through bond purchases on June 20.

The purchase of government securities under the Open Market Operation (OMO) for ₹125 billion ( ₹12,500 crore) will be conducted on June 20, 2019.

The government securities to be purchased in the auction would be communicated in due course, the RBI added.

Earlier in the day, the RBI injected ₹15,000 crore into the system through bond purchases.
