RBI announces Liquidity Easing Measures

The liquidity adjustment facility (LAF) window of the Reserve Bank has been in the deficit mode in the recent period. In order to provide liquidity comfort arising out of frictional liquidity pressure, the Reserve Bank has today announced the following temporary measures:

  • A special second LAF (SLAF) will be conducted on two days at 2.30 p.m. on October 29, 2010 and at 4.15 p.m. on November 1, 2010.

  • A special 2-day repo auction under the LAF will be conducted at 10.30 a.m. on Saturday, October 30, 2010. Scheduled commercial banks may avail of additional liquidity support under the LAF to the extent of up to 1.0 per cent of their net demand and time liabilities (NDTL) as on October 8, 2010. For any shortfall in maintenance of statutory liquidity ratio (SLR) on October 30-31, 2010 arising out of availment of this facility, banks may seek waiver of penal interest purely as an ad hoc, temporary measure. This facility will be available only on Saturday, October 30, 2010.
