India's overnight cash rate rose to a near six-month high of 10.65 % as corporates withdrew funds from banks to pay advance tax, due by September 15.
The cash rate hit its highest since end-March.

The central bank later on Saturday announced a special two-day funding window for banks, after interbank collateralised borrowing rates jumped as high as 72 %.
