Tools used by RBI to control the money market: Repo rate : the rate at which banks borrow money from RBI. Reverse Repo rate : -RBI increases Repo Rate to reduce liquidity. -Financial markets tighten and there is an increase in yields of securities. Banks tie interest rates to these yields. - Increase in lending and deposit rates. Less spending Bank Rate : is the ROI which RBI charges on the loans and advances it extends to commercial banks and other financial intermediatories.
CRR(Cash Reserve Ratio): It is the bank regulation that sets the minimum reserves each bank must hold to customer deposits and notes. These reserves are made to satisfy withdrawal demands and would normally be in the form of flat currency stored in bank vault or in Central Bank.
SLR (Statutory Liquidity Ratio): It is the amount which a bank has to maintain in form of cash, gold or approved securities. The quantum is specified as some percentage of total demand and time liabilities(i.e. the liabilities of the bank which are payable on demand at any time, and those liabilities which are approving in one month’s time due to maturity).
