All banks of India have to keep a fraction of their total net time and demand liability. That's how the lesson starts with the definition of SLR or Statutory Liquidity Ratio. After covering the definition, the lesson goes on to deal with what all SLR contains including cash, gold reserves etc, how it was brought down after the recommendation of Narsimhan committee and the lesson ends with the discussion between differences of SLR and CRR.

Thank you sir. I did the same question earlier, but was not able to figure out clues. You explained it quite well. Sir, you said that 15 down and 15 across means words start with same alphabet. So, that means always 2 words start with same alphabet or there can be more?? and 14 down and 14 across also means the same?
Sir, I have a doubt. If the internal mechanism of bank rate, repo rate, reverse repo rate, Omo and CRR, is to control the money supply in the system. Why does it have so many mechanisms instead of one mechanism?
everything has its own function repo rate for small time loans bank rate for longer time loans like that only
as SLR is kept in non cash form, why did you mention cash in the 5th slide sir???
Sir do Financial institutions and Non banking financing companies also have to maintain CRR and SLR
Sir on ur video on crr ... In that slide at 8:20 u have mentioned that reduction in crr leads to Decrease In money supply? How
Thanks so much sir..

  7. Differences between CRR and SLR CRR and SLR are the quantitative instruments of Reserve Bank of India's monetary control policy. CRR indicates the quantum of cash that banks are required to keep with the Reserve Bank (in their premises) as a proportion of their net demand and time liabilities (NDTL) SLR prescribes the amount of money that banks must invest in securities issued by the government. This is not kept with RBI but with banks themselves.
