This is the amount of money that the banks have to necessarily park with the Reserve Bank of India. The base of this is the total of the deposits that a bank has. The Reserve Bank of India pays the bank interest on the amount parked with it. Among the tools available to the RBI to influence and control the monetary aggregates in the country, the most powerful is that relating to cash reserve requirements imposed on banks. Under section 42 (1) of RBI act, 1934, every scheduled commercial bank was required to maintain with the RBI every fortnight a minimum average daily cash reserve equivalent to 3% of its Net Demand and Time Liabilities (NDTL) outstanding as on the Friday of previous week. RBI uses the CRR either to impound the excess liquidity or release funds needed for the economy from time to time. CRR is the amount the commercial banks need to maintain with the Reserve Bank of India. The amount is based on a fixed percentage computed on each bank's total time and demand liabilities. A CRR of 7.5 per cent means that the banks need to set aside Rs 7.5 for every Rs 100 they receive in deposits. The CRR imposes a cost on the banking system. This is because banks do not receive more than 6.5 per cent interest on the CRR, while they earn higher returns if the money is lent to customers or invested in bonds.
