Indiabonds.com, a Sebi-registered online bond platform, compiled the report using information from the RBI, Clearing Corporation of India, and the Securities and Exchange Board of India.

The central government's debt accounted for the highest share at 46.04%, amounting to Rs 161.1 lakh crore, while state governments' debt constituted 24.4%, totaling USD 604 billion (Rs 50.18 lakh crore), the report said.
