  7. 7. Bank rate Rate at which Central Bank lends money to commercial Banks. Any increase in Bank rate results in an increase in interest rate charged by Commercial banks which in turn leads to low level of investment and low inflation
  8. 8. Cash Reserve Ratio It refers to the cash which banks have to maintain with RBI as certain percentage of their demand and time liabilities. An increase in CRR reduces the cash with commercial banks which results in low supply of currency in the market, higher interest rate and low inflation

  10. 10. REPO RATE Repo rate is the interest rate at which the central bank lends funds to banks against pledging securities It enables collateralized short term borrowing and lending through sale/purchase operations in debt instruments
  11. 11. REVERSE REPO RATE The rate at which RBI borrows money from the banks (or banks lend money to the RBI) is termed the reverse repo rate. If the reverse repo rate is increased, it means the RBI will borrow money from the bank and offer them a lucrative rate of interest. As a result, banks would prefer to keep their money with the RBI (which is absolutely risk free) instead of lending it out (this option comes with a certain amount of risk).
