Germany's net borrowing for 2012 will be EUR 32.1 billion, down from the prior estimate of EUR 34.8 billion, reports said citing a bill approved by the budget committee.
The supplementary federal budget bill is to be passed in the Bundestag this week.
The supplementary budget became necessary as Germany has to shoulder EUR 8.7 billion of the financing for the bailout fund, European Stability Mechanism.
