It is interesting to note that at the end of Q3, the currency with the public also grew sharply at 22.7 per cent
Household financial savings moderated in the third quarter (Q3) of 2020-21 (FY21) for the second consecutive quarter, driven by a significant weakening in household financial assets, which more than offset the moderation in household financial liabilities.
Preliminary estimates released by the Reserve Bank of India (RBI) showed that household financial savings were at 8.2 per cent of gross domestic product (GDP) in the Q3FY21.
The financial savings were recorded at 10.4 per cent in the second quarter (Q2), and stood at a healthy 21 per cent in the first quarter (Q1) of FY21, which was the quarter that bore the brunt of the pandemic-led lockdown.
