MCQ Source – 27th October 2018, The Hindu Newspaper ,Page-11 RBI to inject ₹_40,000 cr. in November

Ans-D

Exp-

  • Open Market Operations refer to the purchase and sale of the Government securities (G-Secs) by RBI from / to market.
  • The objective of Open Market Operations is to adjust the rupee liquidity conditions in the economy on a durable basis.
  • When RBI sells government security in the markets, the banks purchase them. When the banks purchase Government securities, they have a reduced ability to lend to the industrial houses or other commercial sectors.
  • This reduced surplus cash, contracts the rupee liquidity and consequently credit creation / credit supply.
  • When RBI purchases the securities, the commercial banks find them with more surplus cash and this would create more credit in the system.
  • Thus, in the case of excess liquidity, RBI resorts to sale of G-secs to suck out rupee from system. Similarly, when there is a liquidity crunch in the economy, RBI buys securities from the market, thereby releasing liquidity.
  • It’s worth note here that the market for government securities is not well developed in India but still OMO plays very important role.
