Reserve Bank's move for to maintain excess reserve ratio (CRR) requirement is likely to put an additional burden of Rs 1,050 crore on a monthly basis on the system, says a report.

"Excess requirement will additionally cost the system Rs 1,050 crore on a monthly basis," Ratings and Research said in a note here on Wednesday.

In order to absorb surplus liquidity accrued by banks, last week asked to maintain 100% of the (NDTL) accrued between September 16 and November 11 as incremental balance with it.

RBI, however, said it was a purely temporary measure.

According to experts the move is likely to result into over Rs 3 trillion outflow from the

The rating agency said the relief from on would come in a staggered manner, as relieving this high quantum of liquidly all at once will come with challenges.

"Normalisation of the requirement will be gradual and staggered as the may exercise caution before releasing the mopped up Rs 3 trillion to banks," the note said.

It said the persistence of the surplus liquidity conditions will lead the to evaluate alternatives available for liquidity sterilisation.

The agency continues to believe management bills can effectively manage the liquidity - owing to their short tenor and consistency with the monetary policy stance.

The agency also expects to be more proactive in bringing down their term deposit rates as the increase in requirement creates a drag on the short-term profitability of

The move, which is temporary in nature, does not impair the longer term profitability of banks, but induces a larger negative carry on in the computation of the marginal cost-based lending rate (MCLR).

The offsetting impact of a larger negative carry on compared with cheaper would restrict any significant downward movement of MCLR, hampering smooth monetary transmission, it said.
