Money Supply in terms of economics is the Total stock of money held by public. Public Comprises of - Households, firms, local authorities, Non Banking financial institutions (NBFI), Non departmental Public sector undertaking – Hindustan Machine Tools (HMT) and Bharat Heavy Electrical Limited (BHEL).

The term public excludes- Central Government, Reserve Bank of India (RBI) and the commercial banks. 

Economist define money supply in two ways

  • Narrow definition of money supply (M1).
  • Broader definition of money supply (M2)

Narrow money supply: Assets included in this definition of money supply are: 

a) Currency.

b) Demand deposits with the banks.

M1= C + DD

M1 = Narrow Definition of Money Supply; C= Currency, DD= Demand deposits

Broader money supply:  Developed by Milten Freedom of Chicago School of Economics 

Broad money supply includes currency with the public, demand deposits and time deposits with the banks.

M2 = C + DD + TD

C= Currency with Public; DD= Demand Deposits; TD= Time Deposit. 

RBI MEASURES OF MONEY SUPPLY: RBI has four alternative measures of Money Supply- M1, M2, M3, and M4 

The measures of money supply adopted by RBI are as follows.

  • M1= Currency with the Public + Demand Deposit with the Banking System + other Deposits with the RBI.
  • M2= M1+ Time deposit with the banking system.
  • M3= Net bank credit to the Government + Bank Credit to the commercial Sector + Net foreign exchange assets of the banking sector + Government’s currency liabilities to the public – Net non-monetary liabilities of the banking sector. 
  • M4= M3+ All deposits with post office  saving banks (Excluding National Saving Certificates).

As per the Polyeyes prediction, the difference of marks between UR and SC is very small .A gap ofonly 10 marks or 5 questions.In the 5th JPSC PT exam,his gap was of 34 marks or 17 questions without any change in SC seats and number of candidates appeared.

Cut off for UR should be 190-204 marks.
