    The SGB calendar spread over twelve weeks time is part of the offer open for subscription until December this year. The scheme has been extended upto December in light of the heightened buying interest of gold investors just ahead of the Christmas festivities.

    The bond issue opens on Monday every week which can be subscribed until Wednesday of the same week while the settlement per se the issuance has to be made on the first working day of the following week. The government issues a subscription certificate which can be redeemed either at maturity after eight years or after 5 years in case the need arises.
