With the backdrop of digital imprint through trinity –jandhan, Adhaar and mobile (JAM), the society is ready to accept the debut of Central Bank Digital Currency (CBDC).

It will take considerable time for the stakeholders to join in integrating CBDC to strengthen digital transformation.

Evaluating the risks in opening up the banking sector
When considering the strategic role of banks in making India “atmanirbhar” (self-reliant), the size and scope of activities of banks needs to be expanded and accelerated by creating a compatible and energised ecosystem – one that is flexible, but also rigorous enough to tackle underlying risks. In a recent speech on the creation of synergies for seamless credit flow and economic growth’, Prime Minister Narendra Modi categorically stated that banks should move from being ‘loan approvers’ to proactively ‘partnering with loan seekers’ to develop a base of wealth-creating entrepreneurs who can potentially create employment opportunities, and help build a self-reliant country.
Nuances of management of liquidity in banks
It is evident that the onset of the pandemic crisis led to RBI pumping ample liquidity using conventional and non-conventional tools and reducing policy rates to a new low. Loans were made cheaper and government guaranteed loans too were made sufficiently available. Opening new accommodative windows – permitting restructuring of loans, granting moratorium on loan repayments for 6 months, putting Kamath committee to work for restructuring bigger corporate sector loans and many more measures were meant to maintain financial stability during unprecedented pandemic times.
