Primary/Basic functions:-

MONEY SUPPLY: refers to total volume of money held by public at a particular point of time in an economy.

M1=currency held by public + Demand deposits + other deposits with Reserve Bank of India.

M2=M1+saving deposits with post office saving bank

M3=M1+net time deposit with the bank

M4=M3 + total deposits with post office saving bank excluding national saving certificate


Refers to, currency with the public (notes +coins) and cash reserve of banks.

Let us understand the process of credit creation with the following example.
Suppose there is an initial deposit of Rs. 1000 and L.R.R. is 20% i.e., the banks have to keep Rs. 200 and lend Rs. 800/-. All the transactions are routed through banks. The borrower withdraws his Rs. 800/- for making payments which are routed through banks in the form of deposits account. The Bank receives Rs. 800/- as deposit and keeps 20% of Rs.800/- i.e., Rs.160/- and lends Rs.640/- . Again the borrower uses this for payment which flows back into the banks thereby increasing the flow of deposits.
