Federal govt borrows Rs5.5trn from commercial banks in 10 months

Government borrowing hits Rs657 billion in last week, SBP data shows

The federal government borrowed Rs5.5 trillion from commercial banks from July 1 to April 5, 2023-24, an increase from Rs2.95 billion in the corresponding period of the previous fiscal year, according to the State Bank of Pakistan (SBP). 

As per SBP data released on April 13, the government borrowed Rs657 billion in just the last week, bringing its total borrowing for the period to Rs5.5 trillion. 

This level of borrowing has placed substantial pressure on the economy, as the government now allocates most of its revenue to servicing domestic debt.

For fiscal year 2023, the government’s borrowing from banks was Rs3.7 trillion. However, this fiscal year’s borrowing has already surpassed the previous year’s total by Rs1.784 trillion in just nine months.

It is common for the government to increase borrowing from banks in the final quarter of the fiscal year to enhance reported economic performance metrics.

The economy faces severe challenges, with most generated revenue being consumed by domestic debt repayment and interest. This restricts the government’s ability to fund new development programs, leading to reduced allocations for other sectors.

    This is a very joyful day of my life because of the help Dr Gbogbo has rendered to me by helping me get my ex-husband back with his magic and love spell. I was married for 6 years and it was so terrible because my husband was really cheating on me because I had Fibroids and i couldn’t conceive for my husband because of my Fibroids and my husband was seeking a divorce but when I came across Dr Gbogbo email on the internet on how he helped so many people to get their ex back and help to fix relationships and make people happy in their relationship.  Dr Gbogbo has also restored so many people’s health which includes Herpes, Fibroids, PCOS, Diabetes and many more. I explained my situation to him and then sought his help but to my greatest surprise, he told me that he will help me with my case and then give me a herbal medicine that will help me shrink my Fibroids naturally without undergoing surgery which he really did by giving me the herbal medicine that shrinked my Fibroids naturally without me going for surgery. Here I am now celebrating because my Husband has changed totally for good and I am currently pregnant for him. He always wants to be by me and can not do anything without my presence. I am really enjoying my marriage, what a great celebration. I will keep on testifying on the internet because Dr Gbogbo is truly a real spell caster.
