RBI Working Paper No. 12/2020: Bank Capital and Monetary Policy Transmission in India
October, 17th 2020

The Reserve Bank of India today placed on its website a Working Paper titled “Bank Capital and Monetary Policy Transmission in India” under the Reserve Bank of India Working Paper Series*. The paper is authored by Silu Muduli and Harendra Behera.

The paper examines the role of bank capital in monetary policy transmission in India during the post-global financial crisis period. Bank capital channel explains how monetary policy can affect bank lending by impacting the overall capital position of a bank. Thus, capital can have an important role in both lending and borrowing behaviour of banks.

Major findings of the paper are:

  • Banks with higher capital to risk-weighted assets ratio (CRAR) raise funds at a lower cost.

  • Banks with higher CRAR transmit monetary policy impulses smoothly, while stressed assets in the banking sector hinder transmission.

  • Recapitalization to raise CRAR can improve transmission; however, CRAR above a certain threshold level may not help as the sensitivity of loan growth to monetary policy rate reduces for banks with CRAR above the threshold.

  • Monetary policy, thus, can influence credit flows in the economy depending on the capital position of banks.
