RBI ready to inject additional liquidity into banks by March end

Reuters/Mumbai 15 Feb 18 | 04:46 PM

The Reserve Bank of India will be ready to inject adequate amount of extra cash into banks if needed ahead of March-end to give flexibility to lenders to manage their liquidity mismatches that typically happen at quarter-end, it said in a release on Thursday.

The Reserve Bank of India said it "stands ready" to provide additional cash "using a combination of appropriate instruments" without giving any further details on specific steps, to address any extra demand for liquidity due to advance tax payments and increase in withdrawal of cash from banks towards March-end.
