Hi Friends

SLR means "Statutory Liquidity Ratio" It refers to the amount that the commercial banks require to maintain in the form of cash, or gold or govt. approved securities(means bond and shares of different companies) before providing credit to the customers. The objectives of SLR are to restrict the expansion of bank credit.

1. To augment the investment of the banks in government securities.
2. To ensure solvency of banks. A reduction of SLR rates looks eminent to support the credit growth in India.

If you want to know more about any type of bonds such as surety bond, commercial bonds, contractors bond, school bonds and infrastructure bonds etc please visit http://www.probondins.com/

To maintain the liquidity inthe banking system RBI has prescribed Statutory Liquidity Ratio for all scheduled banks to maintain so that they may not be too fast in lending . Banks has huge deposit s of public and if they fail to earn profit or even shed their capital , these securities parked with Government in the form of SLR will slavage the depsoitors..At present 24% of NDTL is to be kept with RBI in the form of govt bonds or other prescribed securities.

Statutory Liquidity Ratio

SLR (Statutory Liquidity Ratio) is the amount a commercial bank needs to maintain in the form of cash, or gold or govt. approved securities (Bonds) before providing credit to its customers. SLR rate is determined and maintained by the RBI (Reserve Bank of India) in order to control the expansion of bank credit.

SLR is determined as the percentage of total demand and percentage of time liabilities. Time Liabilities are the liabilities a commercial bank liable to pay to the customers on their anytime demand.

With the SLR (Statutory Liquidity Ratio), the RBI can ensure the solvency a commercial bank. It is also helpful to control the expansion of Bank Credits. By changing the SLR rates, RBI can increase or decrease bank credit expansion. Also through SLR, RBI compels the commercial banks to invest in government securities like government bonds..
