On the advice of RBI, on Friday the Central Government, has increased the ceiling of liquidity from Rs. 30,000 crores to Rs. 6 trillion. This action is taken by increasing the Market Stabilisation Scheme bonds where the excess liquid cash in the system is stored in a seperate cash account. This will make their issuance minimum to negligible effect on the Government’s Fiscal deficit year. As a temporary measure to control excess liquidity, RBI announced banks will have to keep aside 100 percent cash reserve ratio or CRR against all deposits made in between 16 September to 11 November. The banks have received a staggering Rs. 8.45 trillion worth deposits so as to exchange old demonetised high denomination notes of Rs. 500 and Rs. 1000.
