Treasury Bill Net Issuance (TBNI) refers to the total of Treasury bill issuances less the total of Treasury bill redemptions for the period. This represents the amount of debt accumulated or debt repaid during the period. When the issuances are greater than the redemptions, the debt is accumulated and if the issuances are less than the redemptions, it’s a debt repayment.
