Highlights of RBI Monetary Policy

Understanding CRR and SLR: RBI's monetary policy instruments

For banks, profits are created by lending and investing. In pursuit of this goal, banks could lend considerable amounts to earn higher profits and thus possess less liquid cash with them. Banks are also responsible for the influx of money in the economy as the amount of credits they lend, and the amount that gets deposited with them affects the money supply in the economy.

For someone who is used to binge-watching some random Indian drama, the concept of “comeback” wouldn’t be a new one. Usually, the Hero might fail terribly, and after the second half, he would give an awesome comeback. And to our amusement, we can expect something like this to happen in the real-life as well. Can you guess where I am heading? Of course, it is Yes Bank. It seems to be working hard to make a possible comeback and arise from its grave situation.

Import restrictions on Chinese colour TV sets

We know it's an auspicious day today, and you may have watched the live telecast of Ramjanmbhoomi Bhoomipujan from Ayodhya. There's a fair chance that you would have watched it on a Chinese color TV, maybe a Xiaomi, TCL or OnePlus. Just in case you were thinking of buying a new TV in the near future and witnessing the telecast of such events, it's quite probable that your TV won't be a Chinese brand. Or, even if it is, it would have been manufactured in India.

Time for Educational Transformation!

Our government is involved in filmy coincidences these days. In 2018, a political action drama Telugu movie was released titled 'Dashing CM Bharat' starring Mahesh Babu. In the story, the newly elected CM imposed heavy fines on those breaking traffic rules. Sometime after that, the government introduced heavy monetary penalties for traffic rule violations. Now, just a few weeks ago, a video went viral on social media in which an IAS officer was seen saying not so good things about our education system. And, here we are today witnessing the New Education Policy 2020 that has been introduced by the government. Now, whether films are being made to inspire the government or government is itself getting inspired by the films/social media, it is all worth it until doing good for common people.

Remember Sanjay Dutt’s Vaastav? Had that film been made today, Sanjay Dutt would not have been able to say that famous dialogue “Pachaas Tola!” (translating to 50 ounces of Gold).

There is something called 'Fad.' This is a shorter version or rather the shortest version of fashion. Actually, fashion stays relatively longer than a fad. This is similar to 'getting viral,' which is becoming quite a thing these days. You would have noticed that all the stuff that gets viral stays only till the next thing gets viral. The fact of the matter is that fads stay for a short duration, but till the time they stay, people are just crazy about them. One such fad is e-commerce. You may remember that all the companies were trying to get into e-commerce, and it is still said to be the next big thing. But, looks like now the fad has changed to offline retail!
