The Reserve Bank of India (RBI) is taking measures to encourage retail investors to participate in government security markets.
Harun Khan, a deputy governor at the RBI, said markets in government securities were traditionally dominated by large institutional investors such as banks, insurance companies and pension funds. Khan said rules requiring investors to hold government securities were in decline in many countries, including India, forcing governments to diversify their investor bases.
