In a fresh Banking Act Direction, the Central Bank yesterday informed all licensed banks and National Savings Bank (NSB) to refrain from purchasing Sri Lanka international sovereign bonds (ISBs), with effect from March 23, 2021, until April 9, 2021.


“The Central Bank of Sri Lanka, with a view to easing pressure on the exchange rate and considering the substantial amount of possible/potential outflow of foreign exchange by bank and its impact on banks’ risk management, licensed commercial banks and National Savings Bank are hereby informed to suspend the purchase of Sri Lanka International Sovereign Bonds, with effect from March 23, 2021, until April 9, 2021,” the direction said.

The rupee closed firmer at Rs.198.50/199 levels against the US dollar in one week forward market yesterday, after hitting a new loss of Rs.202/203 levels on Wednesday.
