Explanation about (RR) Repo Rate, (RRR) Reverse Repo Rate and (CRR) Cash Reserve Ratio

Repo Rate – Repo rate is the rate at which the central bank lends money to commercial banks in the event of any shortfall of funds. Monetary authorities use this to control money supply in the economy, thereby inflation.

Reserve bank of India (RBI) finally bit the bullet on Friday and responded to the coronavirus induced crisis with a whopping 75 basis points cut in the Repo rate, bringing it down to 4.4%. The Repo rate has thus fallen to the lowest ever. Before this, it had hit the lowest point of 4.74% in April 2009 in the wake of the global financial crisis.

1%  = 100 basis point
RBI cut repo rate 75 basis points (0.75%)
Old Repo rate = 5.15%
Revised Repo Rate  =  5.15% – 0.75% ⇒ 4.40%

Reverse Repo Rate –  The reverse repo rate is the rate at which  RBI borrows funds from commercial banks. it is the rate at which commercial banks in India park their excess money with RBI usually for the short term.

Reverse Repo Rate

The reverse repo rate also lowered by 90 basis points. The reverse repo rate has been cut by 90 basis points to 4%. Das said this has been done to make it unattractive for banks to passively deposit funds with the RBI and instead lend it to the productive sectors.

Revised Reverse Repo Rate ⇒ 4%

CRR (Cash Reserve Ratio) – CRR or cash reserve ratio is the percentage of total deposits that banks are required to keep in reserves either in the vaults or with RBI so that the same can be given to the bank’s customers if the need arises. Banks do not get any interest on this money.
it is one of the major weapons in RBI’s arsenal that allows it to maintain the desired level of inflation, control money supply and liquidity in the economy.
The lower the CRR, the higher liquidity with banks, which in turn goes into investment and lending and vice-versa.
