The Reserve Bank of India will raise interest rates by a smaller 35 basis points to 6.25% in December, according to economists polled by Reuters who expect another modest move up early next year to curb lingering inflation pressures. A strong two-thirds majority said it was still too soon for the central bank to take its eye off inflation, which slowed to 6.77% in October having stayed above the upper end of the RBI's 2-6% tolerance band all year. The expectations for a more modest rate rise follow a series of 50 basis point hikes by the RBI, and coincides with expectations that the U.S. Federal Reserve will shift to smaller rate rises at its policy meeting this month.

MUMBAI (Reuters) -India's HDFC Bank on Thursday completed the largest-ever bond issuance by any bank amid strong demand from long-term investors, but the large fundraise is unlikely to impact yields for upcoming issues from banks as there is enough demand, said analysts. The private lender raised 150 billion rupees ($1.85 billion) through 10-year Tier-II bonds at an annual coupon of 7.86%, for which it had received bids worth 240.80 billion rupees, according to merchant bankers. "The issue saw very strong bids from large investors and, in fact, the bond has been trading at a premium in the secondary market as traders did not get much stock from the primary (issue)," said Ajay Manglunia, managing director and head of investment grade group at JM Financial.
