Question : 3
In case of the recent Yes Bank crisis:
- RBI superseded the Board of ‘Yes Bank’ through RBI Act 1934
- RBI acted as ‘Lender of Last Resort’
a) (ii) only
b) Both (i) & (i)
c) (i) only
d) Neither (i) nor (ii)Answer »
When there is a liquidity crisis with a bank, then RBI acts as "Lender of last resort" and provides loans at a particular interest rate to the bank.
But when there is major mismanagement in the bank and there are chances of major default/bankruptcy, then RBI, in consultation with Govt. of India, can supersede the "Board of Directors" of banks in the public interest. (But RBI may not supersede the Board of PSU banks).
Once RBI supersedes the Board of Directors (management), then it appoints an "Administrator". This is done as per the "Banking Regulation Act 1949" Section 36ACA.
So, (i) statement is false as RBI supersedes a bank's Board under "Banking Regulation Act 1949" and not under RBI Act 1934
In case of the Yes Bank Crisis, RBI superseded the management of Yes Bank and it also acted as lender of last resort and provided a 90-day loan AT BANK RATE of 5.4% (at that time Bank Rate was repo plus 0.25%, which comes out as 5.15% + 0.25% = 5.4%), plus 3% (so basically RBI charged 5.4% + 3% = 8.4% as a penalty) to meet the immediate liquidity needs of the Yes Bank.
Under the Lender of Last Resort, RBI gives loans against eligible securities to financial institutions (Banks and NBFCs both) in emergencies.

a) (i) & (ii) only
b) (i), (ii) & (iii) only
c) (i) only
d) All of the aboveAnswer »

Question : 5 [SSC SO 2003]
Bank rate is that rate on which–
a) Central Bank of Country lends money to the commercial banks
b) Rural bank gives loan to cooperative societies
c) Any bank lends money to an individual
d) State Bank of India gives loan to the rural banksAnswer »
The bank rate also referred to as the discount rate, is the rate of interest that the central bank charges on the loans and advances to a commercial bank. Repo (Repurchase) rate is the rate at which the central bank lends short-term money to the banks against securities.
A reduction in the repo rate will help banks to get money at a cheaper rate. The reverse repo rate is the rate at which the banks park surplus funds with the reserve bank, while the repo rate is the rate at which the banks borrow from the central bank.
