MONETARY POLICY :-
Monetary policy is a regulatory policy by which the central bank or monetary authority of a
country controls the supply of money, availability of bank credit and cost of money, that is, the
rate of Interest.
Monetary policy / monetary management is regarded as an important tool of economic
management in India. RBI controls the supply of money and bank credit. The Central bank has
the duty to see that legitimate credit requirements are met and at the same credit is not used for
unproductive and speculative purposes. RBI rightly calls its credit policy as one of controlled
expansion.
OBJECTIVES OF MONETARY POLICY OF INDIA:-
The main objective of monetary policy in India is ‘growth with stability’. Monetary
Management regulates availability, cost and use of money and credit. It also brings institutional
changes in the financial sector of the economy. Following are the main objectives of monetary
policy in India :-
1. Growth With Stability :-
Traditionally, RBI’s monetary policy was focused on controlling inflation through contraction
of money supply and credit. This resulted in poor growth performance. Thus, RBI have now
adopted the policy of ‘Growth with Stability’. This means sufficient credit will be available for
growing needs of different sectors of economy and at the same time, inflation will be controlled
with in a certain limit.
2. Regulation, Supervision And Development Of Financial Stability :-
Financial stability means the ability of the economy to absorb shocks and maintain
confidence in financial system. Threats to financial stability can come from internal and external
shocks. Such shocks can destabilize the country’s financial system. Thus, greater importance is
being given to RBI’s role in maintaining confidence in financial system through proper regulation
and controls, without sacrificing the objective of growth. Therefore, RBI is focusing on
regulation, supervision and development of financial system.
3. Promoting Priority Sector :-
Priority sector includes agriculture, export and small scale enterprises and weaker section of
population. RBI with the help of bank provides timely and adequately credit at affordable cost of
weaker sections and low income groups. RBI, along with NABARD, is focusing on microfinance
through the promotion of Self Help groups and other institutions.
4. Generation Of Employment :-
Monetary policy helps in employment generation by influencing the rate of investment and
allocation of investment among various economic activities of different labour Intensities.
5. External Stability :-
With the growth of imports and exports India’s linkages with global economy are getting
stronger. Earlier, RBI controlled foreign exchange market by determining eaxchange rate. Now,
RBI has only indirect control over external stability through the mechanism of ‘managed
Flexibility’, where it influences exchange rate by buying and selling foreign currencies in open
market.
6. Encouraging Savings And Investments :-
RBI by offering attractive interest rates encourage savings in the economy. A high rate of
saving promotes investment. Thus the monetary management by influencing rates of interest
can influence saving mobilization in the country.
7. Redistribution Of income And Wealth :-
By control of inflation and deployment of credit to weaker sectors of society the monetary
policy may redistribute income and wealth favouring to weaker sections.
8. Regulation Of NBFIs:-
Non – Banking Financial Institutions (NBFIs), like UTI, IDBI, IFCI plays an important role in
deployment of credit and mobilization of savings. RBI does not have any direct control on the
functioning of such institutions. However it can indirectly affects the policies and functions of
NBFIs through its monetary policy.

A) MONETARY POLICY OF RBI :-
The Monetary Policy of RBI is not merely one of credit restriction, but it has also the duty to see that
legitimate credit requirements are met and at the same time credit is not used for unproductive and
speculative purposes RBI has various weapons of monetary control and by using them, it hopes to achieve
its monetary policy.
I) General I Quantitative Credit Control Methods :-
In India, the legal framework of RBI’s control over the credit structure has been provided
Under Reserve Bank of India Act, 1934 and the Banking RegulationAct, 1949. Quantitative credit
controls are used to maintain proper quantity of credit o money supply in market. Some of the important
general credit control methods are:-
1. Bank Rate Policy :-
Bank rate is the rate at which the Central bank lends money to the commercial banks for their liquidity
requirements. Bank rate is also called discount rate. In other words bank rate is the rate at which the
central bank rediscounts eligible papers (like approved securities, bills of exchange, commercial papers
etc) held by commercial banks.
Bank rate is important because its is the pace setter to other marketrates of
interest. Bank rates have been changed severaltimes by RBI to control inflation
and recession.
2. Open market operations :-
It refers to buying and selling of government securities in open market in order to expand or contract
the amount of money in the banking system.This technique is superior to bank rate policy. Purchases
inject money into the banking system while sale of securities do the opposite. During last two decades the
RBI has been undertaking switch operations. These involve the purchase of one loan against the sale of
another or, vice-versa. This policy aims at preventing unrestricted increase in liquidity.
3. Cash Reserve Ratio (CRR)
The Gash Reserve Ratio (CRR) is an effective instrument of credit control. Under the RBl Act of,
l934 every commercial bank has to keep certain minimum cash reserves with RBI. The RBI is
empowered to vary the CRR between 3% and 15%. A high CRR reduces the cash for lending and a low
CRR increases the cash for lending. The CRR has been brought down from 15% in 1991 to 7.5% in May
2001. It further reduced to 5.5% in December 2001. It stood at 5% on January 2009. In January 2010, RBI
increased the CRR from 5% to 5.75%. It further increased in April 2010 to 6% as inflationary pressures
had started building up in the economy. As of March 2011, CRR is 6%.
4. Statutory Liquidity Ratio (SLR)
Under SLR, the government has imposed an obligation on the banks to ,maintain a certain ratio to its
total deposits with RBI in the form of liquid assets like cash, gold and other securities. The RBI has
power to fix SLR in the range of 25% and 40% between 1990 and 1992 SLR was as high as 38.5%.
Narasimham Committee did not favour maintenance of high SLR. The SLR was lowered down to 25%
from 10th
October 1997.It was further reduced to 24% on November 2008. At present it is 25%.
5. Repo And Reverse Repo Rates
In determining interest rate trends, the repo and reverse repo rates are becoming important. Repo
means Sale and Repurchase Agreement. Repo is a swap deal involving the immediate Sale of Securities
and simultaneous purchase of those securities at a future date, at a predetermined price. Repo rate helps
commercial banks to acquire funds from RBI by selling securities and also agreeing to repurchase at a
later date.
Reverse repo rate is the rate that banks get from RBI for parking their short term excess funds with
RBI. Repo and reverse repo operations are used by RBI in its Liquidity Adjustment Facility. RBI
contracts credit by increasing the repo and reverse repo rates and by decreasing them it expands credit.
Repo rate was 6.75% in March 2011 and Reverse repo rate was 5.75% for the same period. On May 2011
RBI announced Monetary Policy for 2011-12. To reduce inflation it hiked repo rate to,7.25% and Reverse
repo to 6.25%
II) SELECTIVE / QUALITATIVE CREDIT CONTROL METHODS :-
Under Selective Credit Control, credit is provided to selected borrowersfor selected purpose,
depending upon the use to which the control try to regulate the quality of credit - the direction towards
thecredit flows. The Selective Controls are :-
1. Ceiling On Credit
The Ceilingon level of credit restricts the lending capacity of a bank to grant advances against certain
controlled securities.
2. MarginRequirements :-
A loan is sanctioned against Collateral Security. Margin means that proportion of the value of security
against which loan is not given. Margin against a particular security is reduced or increased in order to
encourageor to discourage the flow of credit to a particular sector. It varies from 20% to 80%. For
agricultural commodities it is as high as 75%. Higher the margin lesser will be the loan sanctioned.
3. Discriminatory Interest Rate (DIR)
Through DIR, RBI makes credit flow to certain priority or weaker sectors by charging concessional rates
of interest. RBI issues supplementary instructions regarding granting of additional credit against sensitive
commodities, issue of guarantees,making advances etc. .
4. Directives:-
The RBI issues directives to banks regarding advances. Directives are regarding the purpose for which
loans may or may not be given.
5. Direct Action
It is too severe and is therefore rarely followed. It may involve refusal by RBI to rediscount bills or
cancellation of license, if the bank has failed to comply with the directives of RBI.
6. Moral Suasion
Under Moral Suasion, RBI issues periodical letters to bank to exercise control over credit in general or
advances against particular commodities. Periodic discussions are held with authorities of commercial
banks in this respect.
Q. 4 :Examine the recent changes that have taken place in RBIs Monetary Policy. (Mar. ‘11)
Ans. A)RECENT CHANGES IN RBI’s MONETARY POLICY :-
Since 1991 RBI’s monetary management has undergone some major changes.
Let us explain
1) Multiple Indicator Approach :-
Upto late 1990s, RBI used the ‘Monetary targeting approach’ to its monetary policy. Monetary
targeting refers to a monetary policy strategy aimed at maintaining price stability by focusing on changes
in growth of money supply. After 1991 reforms this approach became difficult to follow. So RBI adopted
Multiple indicator Approach in which it looks at a variety of economic indicators and monitor their
impact on inflation and economic growth.
2) Selective Methods Being Phased Out :-
With rapid progress in financial markets, the selective methods of credit control are being slowly
phased out. Quantitative methods are becoming more important.
3) Reduction In Reserve Requirements :-
In post-reform period the CRR and SLR have been progressively lowered. This has been done as a
part of financial sector reforms. As a result, more bank funds have been released for lending. This has led
to the growth of economy.
4) Deregulation Of Administered Interest Rate System :-
Earlier lending rate of banks was determined by RBI. Since 1990s this system has changed and
lending rates are determined by commercial banks on the basis of market forces.
5) Delinking Of Monetary Policy From Budget Deficit :-
In1994 government phased out the use of adhoc treasury Bills.These bills were used by
government to borrow from RBI to finance fiscal deficit. With phasing out of Bills, RBI would no longer
lend to government to meet fiscal deficit.
6) Liquidity Adjustment Facility (LAF):-
LAF allows banks to borrow money through repurchase agreement LAF was introduced by RBI
during June, 2000, in phases. The funds under LAF are used by banks to meet day-to-day mismatches in
liquidity.
7) Provision Of Micro Finance
By linking the banking system with Self Help Groups, RBI has introduced the scheme of micro
finance for rural poor. Along with NABARD,RBI is promoting various other microfinance institutions.

  • 1. MONETARY POLICY :- Monetary policy is a regulatory policy by which the central bank or monetary authority of a country controls the supply of money, availability of bank credit and cost of money, that is, the rate of Interest. Monetary policy / monetary management is regarded as an important tool of economic management in India. RBI controls the supply of money and bank credit. The Central bank has the duty to see that legitimate credit requirements are met and at the same credit is not used for unproductive and speculative purposes. RBI rightly calls its credit policy as one of controlled expansion. OBJECTIVES OF MONETARY POLICY OF INDIA:- The main objective of monetary policy in India is ‘growth with stability’. Monetary Management regulates availability, cost and use of money and credit. It also brings institutional changes in the financial sector of the economy. Following are the main objectives of monetary policy in India :- 1. Growth With Stability :- Traditionally, RBI’s monetary policy was focused on controlling inflation through contraction of money supply and credit. This resulted in poor growth performance. Thus, RBI have now adopted the policy of ‘Growth with Stability’. This means sufficient credit will be available for growing needs of different sectors of economy and at the same time, inflation will be controlled with in a certain limit. 2. Regulation, Supervision And Development Of Financial Stability :- Financial stability means the ability of the economy to absorb shocks and maintain confidence in financial system. Threats to financial stability can come from internal and external shocks. Such shocks can destabilize the country’s financial system. Thus, greater importance is being given to RBI’s role in maintaining confidence in financial system through proper regulation and controls, without sacrificing the objective of growth. Therefore, RBI is focusing on regulation, supervision and development of financial system. 3. Promoting Priority Sector :- Priority sector includes agriculture, export and small scale enterprises and weaker section of population. RBI with the help of bank provides timely and adequately credit at affordable cost of weaker sections and low income groups. RBI, along with NABARD, is focusing on microfinance through the promotion of Self Help groups and other institutions. 4. Generation Of Employment :- Monetary policy helps in employment generation by influencing the rate of investment and allocation of investment among various economic activities of different labour Intensities. 5. External Stability :- With the growth of imports and exports India’s linkages with global economy are getting stronger. Earlier, RBI controlled foreign exchange market by determining eaxchange rate. Now, RBI has only indirect control over external stability through the mechanism of ‘managed Flexibility’, where it influences exchange rate by buying and selling foreign currencies in open market. 6. Encouraging Savings And Investments :-
  • 2. RBI by offering attractive interest rates encourage savings in the economy. A high rate of saving promotes investment. Thus the monetary management by influencing rates of interest can influence saving mobilization in the country. 7. Redistribution Of income And Wealth :- By control of inflation and deployment of credit to weaker sectors of society the monetary policy may redistribute income and wealth favouring to weaker sections. 8. Regulation Of NBFIs:- Non – Banking Financial Institutions (NBFIs), like UTI, IDBI, IFCI plays an important role in deployment of credit and mobilization of savings. RBI does not have any direct control on the functioning of such institutions. However it can indirectly affects the policies and functions of NBFIs through its monetary policy. Discuss / Explain the various functions of RBI. A.RESERVE BANK OF INDIA (RBI) :- The Reserve Bank of India is the central bank of India it was established as a shareholder’s bank on 1st April 1935. Its share capital was Rs. 5 crore, divided in to 5 lakhs fully paid up shares of Rs. 100 each. On 1st January 1949 it was nationalized. Its headquarters is at Mumbai.

RBI helps the Government – both Central and state – to float new loans and manage public debt. The bank makes ways and meets advances of the government. On behalf of central government it sells treasury bills and thereby provides short-term finance. 3. Banker’s bank And Lender Off Last Resort :- RBI acts as a banker to other banks. It provides financial assistance to scheduled banks and state co-operative banks in form of rediscounting of eligible bills and loans and advances against approved securities. RBI acts as a lender of last resort. It provides funds to bank when they fail to get it from other sources. It also acts as a clearing house. Through RBI, banks make interbanks payments. 4. Controller Of Credit :- RBI has power to control the volume of credit created by banks.

  • 3. interest of economy. RBI pumps in money during busy season and withdraws money during slack season. 5. Exchange control And Custodian Of Foreign Reserve :- RBI has the responsibility of maintaining fixed exchange rates with all member countries of IMF. For this, RBI has centralized all foreign exchange reserves (FOREX). RBI functions as custodian of nations foreign exchange reserves. It has to maintain external valu of Rupee. RBI achieves this aim through appropriate monetary fiscal and trade policies and exchange control. 6.

RBI has a special Agricultural Credit Department (ACD) which studies the problems of agricultural credit. For this Regional Rural banks, Co-operative, NABARD etc. were established. The RBI has also taken measures to promote organized bill market to create elasticity in Indian Money Market in order to satisfy seasonal credit needs. Thus RBI has contributed to economic growth by promoting rural credit, industrial financing, export trade etc. Explain the quantitative and selective methods ofcredit controlused by RBI.OR Explain the Monetary Policy ofRBI Imeasures takenby RBIto controlcredit. OR Write note on Quantitative I Selective methods ofcredit control. OR Explain Monetary Management ofRBI. A) MONETARY POLICY OF RBI :- The Monetary Policy of RBI is not merely one of credit restriction, but it has also the duty to see that legitimate credit requirements are met and at the same time credit is not used for unproductive and
  • 4. speculative purposes RBI has various weapons of monetary control and by using them, it hopes to achieve its monetary policy. I) General I Quantitative Credit Control Methods :- In India, the legal framework of RBI’s control over the credit structure has been provided Under Reserve Bank of India Act, 1934 and the Banking RegulationAct, 1949. Quantitative credit controls are used to maintain proper quantity of credit o money supply in market. Some of the important general credit control methods are:- 1. Bank Rate Policy :- Bank rate is the rate at which the Central bank lends money to the commercial banks for their liquidity requirements. Bank rate is also called discount rate. In other words bank rate is the rate at which the central bank rediscounts eligible papers (like approved securities, bills of exchange, commercial papers etc) held by commercial banks. Bank rate is important because its is the pace setter to other marketrates of interest. Bank rates have been changed severaltimes by RBI to control inflation and recession. 2. Open market operations :- It refers to buying and selling of government securities in open market in order to expand or contract the amount of money in the banking system.This technique is superior to bank rate policy. Purchases inject money into the banking system while sale of securities do the opposite. During last two decades the RBI has been undertaking switch operations. These involve the purchase of one loan against the sale of another or, vice-versa. This policy aims at preventing unrestricted increase in liquidity. 3. Cash Reserve Ratio (CRR) The Gash Reserve Ratio (CRR) is an effective instrument of credit control. Under the RBl Act of, l934 every commercial bank has to keep certain minimum cash reserves with RBI. The RBI is empowered to vary the CRR between 3% and 15%. A high CRR reduces the cash for lending and a low CRR increases the cash for lending. The CRR has been brought down from 15% in 1991 to 7.5% in May 2001. It further reduced to 5.5% in December 2001. It stood at 5% on January 2009. In January 2010, RBI increased the CRR from 5% to 5.75%. It further increased in April 2010 to 6% as inflationary pressures had started building up in the economy. As of March 2011, CRR is 6%. 4. Statutory Liquidity Ratio (SLR) Under SLR, the government has imposed an obligation on the banks to ,maintain a certain ratio to its total deposits with RBI in the form of liquid assets like cash, gold and other securities. The RBI has power to fix SLR in the range of 25% and 40% between 1990 and 1992 SLR was as high as 38.5%. Narasimham Committee did not favour maintenance of high SLR. The SLR was lowered down to 25% from 10th October 1997.It was further reduced to 24% on November 2008. At present it is 25%. 5. Repo And Reverse Repo Rates In determining interest rate trends, the repo and reverse repo rates are becoming important. Repo means Sale and Repurchase Agreement. Repo is a swap deal involving the immediate Sale of Securities and simultaneous purchase of those securities at a future date, at a predetermined price. Repo rate helps
  • 5. commercial banks to acquire funds from RBI by selling securities and also agreeing to repurchase at a later date. Reverse repo rate is the rate that banks get from RBI for parking their short term excess funds with RBI. Repo and reverse repo operations are used by RBI in its Liquidity Adjustment Facility. RBI contracts credit by increasing the repo and reverse repo rates and by decreasing them it expands credit. Repo rate was 6.75% in March 2011 and Reverse repo rate was 5.75% for the same period. On May 2011 RBI announced Monetary Policy for 2011-12. To reduce inflation it hiked repo rate to,7.25% and Reverse repo to 6.25% II) SELECTIVE / QUALITATIVE CREDIT CONTROL METHODS :- Under Selective Credit Control, credit is provided to selected borrowersfor selected purpose, depending upon the use to which the control try to regulate the quality of credit - the direction towards thecredit flows. The Selective Controls are :- 1. Ceiling On Credit The Ceilingon level of credit restricts the lending capacity of a bank to grant advances against certain controlled securities. 2. MarginRequirements :- A loan is sanctioned against Collateral Security. Margin means that proportion of the value of security against which loan is not given. Margin against a particular security is reduced or increased in order to encourageor to discourage the flow of credit to a particular sector. It varies from 20% to 80%. For agricultural commodities it is as high as 75%. Higher the margin lesser will be the loan sanctioned. 3. Discriminatory Interest Rate (DIR) Through DIR, RBI makes credit flow to certain priority or weaker sectors by charging concessional rates of interest. RBI issues supplementary instructions regarding granting of additional credit against sensitive commodities, issue of guarantees,making advances etc. . 4. Directives:- The RBI issues directives to banks regarding advances. Directives are regarding the purpose for which loans may or may not be given. 5. Direct Action It is too severe and is therefore rarely followed. It may involve refusal by RBI to rediscount bills or cancellation of license, if the bank has failed to comply with the directives of RBI. 6. Moral Suasion Under Moral Suasion, RBI issues periodical letters to bank to exercise control over credit in general or advances against particular commodities. Periodic discussions are held with authorities of commercial banks in this respect. Q. 4 :Examine the recent changes that have taken place in RBIs Monetary Policy. (Mar. ‘11) Ans. A)RECENT CHANGES IN RBI’s MONETARY POLICY :- Since 1991 RBI’s monetary management has undergone some major changes. Let us explain 1) Multiple Indicator Approach :-
  • 6. Upto late 1990s, RBI used the ‘Monetary targeting approach’ to its monetary policy. Monetary targeting refers to a monetary policy strategy aimed at maintaining price stability by focusing on changes in growth of money supply. After 1991 reforms this approach became difficult to follow. So RBI adopted Multiple indicator Approach in which it looks at a variety of economic indicators and monitor their impact on inflation and economic growth. 2) Selective Methods Being Phased Out :- With rapid progress in financial markets, the selective methods of credit control are being slowly phased out. Quantitative methods are becoming more important. 3) Reduction In Reserve Requirements :- In post-reform period the CRR and SLR have been progressively lowered. This has been done as a part of financial sector reforms. As a result, more bank funds have been released for lending. This has led to the growth of economy. 4) Deregulation Of Administered Interest Rate System :- Earlier lending rate of banks was determined by RBI. Since 1990s this system has changed and lending rates are determined by commercial banks on the basis of market forces. 5) Delinking Of Monetary Policy From Budget Deficit :- In1994 government phased out the use of adhoc treasury Bills.These bills were used by government to borrow from RBI to finance fiscal deficit. With phasing out of Bills, RBI would no longer lend to government to meet fiscal deficit. 6) Liquidity Adjustment Facility (LAF):- LAF allows banks to borrow money through repurchase agreement LAF was introduced by RBI during June, 2000, in phases. The funds under LAF are used by banks to meet day-to-day mismatches in liquidity. 7) Provision Of Micro Finance By linking the banking system with Self Help Groups, RBI has introduced the scheme of micro finance for rural poor. Along with NABARD,RBI is promoting various other microfinance institutions.
