Sections. This is because, almost all the questions (approximately 93%) are from the current affairs of

Bank of India, which in turn became the State Bank of India. Government of India nationalized the

Explanations
Bank Rate
Bank rate, also referred to as the discount rate, is the
rate of interest which a central bank charges on the
loans and advances that it extends to commercial banks
and other financial intermediaries. Changes in the bank
rate are often used by central banks to control the
money supply.

Repo Rate
Repo rate is the rate at which our banks borrow rupees
from RBI. Whenever the banks have any shortage of
funds they can borrow it from RBI. A reduction in the
repo rate will help banks to get money at a cheaper
rate. When the repo rate increases, borrowing from
RBI becomes more expensive.
Reverse Repo Rate
This is exact opposite of Repo rate. Reverse Repo rate
is the rate at which Reserve Bank of India (RBI)
borrows money from banks. RBI uses this tool when it
feels there is too much money floating in the banking
system. Banks are always happy to lend money to RBI
since their money is in safe hands with a good interest.
An increase in Reverse repo rate can cause the banks
to transfer more funds to RBI due to this attractive
interest rates.
CRR
Cash reserve Ratio (CRR) is the amount of funds that
the banks have to keep with RBI. If RBI decides to
increase the percent of this, the available amount with
the banks comes down. RBI is using this method
(increase of CRR rate), to drain out the excessive
money from the banks.
SLR
SLR (Statutory Liquidity Ratio) is the amount a
commercial bank needs to maintain in the form of
cash, or gold or govt. approved securities (Bonds)
before providing credit to its customers. SLR rate is
determined and maintained by the RBI (Reserve Bank
of India) in order to control the expansion of bank
credit. SLR is determined as the percentage of total
demand and percentage of time liabilities. Time
Liabilities are the liabilities a commercial bank liable
to pay to the customers on their anytime demand. SLR
is used to control inflation and propel growth. Through
SLR rate tuning the money supply in the system can be
controlled efficiently.
Marginal Standing Facility (MSF)
Marginal Standing Facility (MSF) is the rate at which
scheduled banks could borrow funds overnight from
the Reserve Bank of India (RBI) against approved
government securities. The basic difference between
Repo and MSF scheme is that in MSF banks can use
the securities under SLR to get loans from RBI and
hence MSF rate is 1% more than repo rate.
