STATE DEVELOPEMENT LOANS

 
State Development Loans, or SDLs, as they are colloquially called, are issuances of the respective states in order to manage their own state finances. The structure and nature of SDLs is broadly similar to that of a fixed rate Dated G-Sec. However, these instruments are generally issued for maturities upto 10 years. Also, reissuances of SDLs are extremely rare. In other words, generally, every SDL auction is an auction of a new SDL security and therefore, the auction process is yield based.

Generally, as SDLs have the backing of the respective states, depending on the fiscal health of the states and the consequent risk element associated in such investments, SDLs are traded at a spread above the benchmark G-Sec security. Liquidity of these securities is yet another factor that has a bearing on SDL valuation. However, investment in SDLs may be a good option for investors seeking to earn higher coupons.

As in Dated G-Sec, institutional player dominate this segment. Foreign flows too, have been permitted in SDLs. Non-competitive bidding is allowed in SDLs to the extent of 1% of the notified amount. The trading and settlement mechanism for SDLs remains the same as in case of Dated G-Sec.
