The government will announce the fiscal second-half borrowing that begins in October on September 23, the report said.

Separately, two sources told Reuters that September 23 was a tentative date for the announcement of the borrowing calendar.

Yields rose on doubts whether the government will now go ahead with an announced Rs 50, 000 crore debt switch which would reduce the gross supply by an equivalent amount. If not, it would mean an incremental supply of Rs 50000 crore, dealers said.

The 10-year yield rose 5 basis points to 8.43 percent after the report.
