    Hello sir.
    I’ve some doubt in the question no. 5.
    How can the increase in the ‘Reverse Repo Rate’ can cause an increase in the interest rates of banks, because a ‘Reverse repo Rate’ is the rate at which the central bank borrows short term loans from banks.So if this rate is increased , then the money with the commercial banks should increase, same way their interest rates should decrase.

    Please help me out of this confusion. Many thanks.
    Himanshu R.
