FinMin raises FII limit in G-Secs, corp bonds



* FIIs can invest an additional $10 billion in debt instruments after the move

* This raises the overall window available to $75 billion annually

* Long-term investors such as pension funds, central banks and sovereign wealth funds would be able to buy debt from the new FII window without any stipulated residual limit

* The finance ministry is hoping that the decision would help finance the country's burgeoning current account deficit that is currently pegged at 3.5% of GDP
