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.
Dad: To understand this you first need to know, how does a bank function. How Do Bank Works.
Dad: Because all these are inter-related. Tell me – what does a bank do?
Son: Bank takes money from depositors and gives the loan to earn interest. That way they keep everyone happy and make a profit also.
Dad: Correct, but there are more to it. Let me explain this in a very simplistic way. The bank needs money. Bank can get money from depositors like you and me and also from RBI. But the bank also needs to pay certain interest to us and also to RBI.
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.
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%.
Son: Hmmm, then? Continue reading “How Do Bank Works Know about CRR SLR REPO RATE”
