Directions (Q. 51-60): Read the passage carefully and answer the questions given below it
\

The Reserve Bank of India set up the constitution of the working group on Benchmark Prime
Lending Rate (BPLR) in Annual Policy Statement of2009-1 0 under the chairmanship of
Deepak Mohanty to review the BPLR system and suggest changes to make credit pricing
more transparent. The committee submitted its report in October 2009.
Base Rate is the minimum rate of interest that a bank is allowed to charge its customers. It
includes all those components of lending rates that are common across all categories of
borrowers. Banks may choose any benchmark to arrive at the base rate for a specific tenure that
can be disclosed in a transparent manner. All new loan cases and renewal cases will be covered
under base rate with effect from July 1,2010.As per RBI rules, no bank can offer loans at a rate
below base rate except certain categories such as loans under DRI schemes, loans to bank's own
employees, loans to bank depositors against their own deposits, crop loans below~3lakh for
which subvention is available, export credit where subvention is available, restructured loans etc.
There are ten such categories.
As per RBI regulations, banks were free to fix BPLR for credit limits over Rs.2 lakh with the
approval of their respective Boards. Banks may authorise their Asset Liability Management
Committee (ALCO) to fix interest rates on deposits and advances, subject to their reporting to
the Board immediately thereafter. Banks should also declare the maximum spread over BPLR
with the approval of the ALCO/ Board for all loans and advances.
BPLR varied from one bank to another. Moreover, the variation was quite high,
sometimes over 4%. Therefore, need was felt to replace existing BPLR system with a
new system. According to the working group set up on BPLR, "The BPLR

has tended to be out of sync with market conditions and does not adequately respond to changes
in monetary policy. Moreover, there is tendency of banks to lend at sub-BPLR rates on a large
scale. Under competitive pressures, banks were lending at rates which did not make much
commercial sense." Thus, the group was of the view that BPLR system has fallen short of
expectations in its original objective of ensuring transparency in lending rates charged by banks
and needs modification.
As per Mohanty report, most of the bank's corporate loans were below BPLR while small
borrowers and agriculture loan borrowers paid higher than BPLR rates, thus subsidising high-
value borrowers. RBI has now deregulated interest rates. Banks will now charge fixed or floating
rates on the basis of base rate that itself will reflect transaction costs and risk perceptions.

126. 4; Let his monthly salary be x. House rent expenditure = 30/100x = 3x/10
Remaining = 7x /10, Expense of food = 7x/10 X 55/100 = 77x/200
Remaining = 7x/10 – 77x/200 = 140x – 77x / 200 == 63x /200.
Monthly saving = 59724/12 = 4977
63x/200 = 4977 === x = 4977 X 200 / 63 = 15800.
Expenditure on food and clothes = 77x / 200 = 6083.
127. 5; Data is not sufficient. Let the distance be x km and speed of the stream be V
x/8 + V + x/8 –V = 20
To find the value of x, we need the value of V
128. 1; Population = 200000 X 1.05 X 1.05 X 1.05 = 231525
129. 2; Let the length of the train be x and the speed be V
Length of the platform = x+ 60x / 100 = 160x /100 = 8x /5 = 160
x = 100, V = 100/5 = 20 ms-1
130. 5; Let the number be 10x + y, x/y = 2/1 x = 2y (i)
10x + y – (10y + x) = 36
9x – 9y = 36 , x –y = 4 …(ii)
From equation (i) and (ii), x =8, y = 4 , Number = 84
Required number = 84 X 350/100 = 294.
131. 5; A total of (7 +3) persons = 10 personal can sit in 10! Ways
If we consider three girls as one unit, total persons = 7 + 1 = 8 (here all three girls
sit together).
No. of ways = 8! And the three girls can be arranged in 3! Ways among
themselves. So, the total number of ways when three girls sit together = 8! X 3!
When the girls don’t sit together, number of ways = 10! – (8! X 3!) =
8! (10X9 – 6) = 8! X 84 = 3386880
132. 1; Total balls = 5 + 4 + 4 = 13
n(S) = 13C3 = 286
2 blue balls can be selected from 4 balls in 4C2 = 6 ways and the remaining one
ball is to be selected from 9 balls in 9C1 = 9 ways.

133. 2; Let the sum be x and the interest be r% p.a.
1620 = x X6 X r/100 , r =( 27000/x) % p.a.
After three years, the sum becomes
x +x X100/100 = 2x,
SI = x X3 X 27000/ x X 100 + 2x X 3 X 27000/ x X 100

7x + 11y = 10480/8 = 1310 (i)
8x + 6y = 12480/12 = 1070, 4x + 3y = 535 (ii)
Equation (i) X 4 – Equation (ii) X 7 gives
