Cash Reserve Ratio (CRR) and Statutory Liquidity Ratio (SLR) are called Statutory Pre-emptions. The RBI has been empowered by Banking Regulation Act and RBI act to mandate commercial banks to maintain a certain portion of their Net Demand and Time Liabilities (NDTL) in the form of cash with the Reserve Bank [this is called Cash Reserve Ratio (CRR)] and in the form of investment in unencumbered approved securities [this is called Statutory Liquidity Ratio (SLR)]. They are statutory because they get their legality from Banking Regulation Act 1949.
