Banks parked about Rs1.45 trillion with RBI
Mumbai: Banks parked about Rs1.45 trillion with the central bank, signalling heavy liquidity in the system. This is the highest ever amount parked with the Reserve Bank of India (RBI), and comes even after the closing of one liquidity adjustment facility (LAF) window. LAF is conducted by RBI to inject or suck out liquidity from the system. Banks had applied to park at least Rs1.47 trillion with RBI but the later rejected some bids.
