The budget documents available in the public domain reveal that the total value of pending oil bonds by the end of 2013-14 was ₹1.3 lakh crore. Even the budget receipt issued in the year 2020-2021 indicated the same. According to the budget receipt, the only set of oil bonds cleared from 2014-2015 was worth ₹3500 crores. The Modi government had also confirmed the repaid loan amount in response to a questioning session held in Rajya Sabha on December 12, 2018.
