How Do Bank Works Know about CRR SLR REPO RATE

In this Post, i am going to share how  do Bank works actually.  After going through this post one Can really understand about CRR, SLR, REPO RATE, REVERSE REPO RATE

Son: I have heard recently that Mr Urjit Patel has reduced Repo Rate by 50 basis points and everyone is saying that this is good for the market. Loan EMI may also come down. What is this rate cut means actually? I want to understand this.

Son: Ok.
Dad: Let us try to understand first – what happens when we deposit, say, Rs. 100 with a bank.
Son: I know that. Bank gives that Rs. 100 to someone who needs a loan.
Dad: No, it is not that simple. Remember, though the bank can earn interest by giving away loans, but it is also very risky. There are many cases of loan defaults. This way banks can put all our money into high-risk areas. It has to be protected.
Son: How?
Dad: Ok, RBI has made it mandatory that upon receiving, say, Rs. 100 – banks first have to deposit Rs. 4 with RBI. RBI keeps this Rs. 4 in its current a/c and hence banks do not receive any interest on this money. This is known as Cash Reserve Ratio or CRR, which is currently at 4%.
