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).

What is process job in bihar block

by Jitendra Sharma

Well based on the complexity of questions from constitution, Current affairs, Science and economics ....with an additional option E, it can be said that CUT O FF for General Should be around 80-82....Even many other site including VISION IAS has also speculated the cut off around 84 for General !!

by Surovi

ye jo log 90-92 ki baaten kar rahen unhe khud pata nahi ki what is the right answer for all question. No website has so far given correct solution for all question. I agree with surovi. Th cut off this time should go even lower than last year around 82-84 for general!!

my dob is -12/02/92 my exam centre is in tilaya on 18 dec but i had lost my admit card so plz give my roll no. atleast so i check the result.

by Rohit Kumar

I guess cut off this time should not exceed 85 for general category. Option Ewas very confusing.science was really the most tougest part. !!

by Bandana

at least 10-15 solutions given on the website is absolutely wrong. even most of the answers of science part are also wrongly given by VISION IAS. MY expectation for PT cut off this year should be around 84-85 for general cat. 78-81 For bc . Hardly 100-200 candidate would be able to score 90-95. so the common basis of cut off should linger around 85-82 for general Cat.
