    Which among the following can raise interest rates in the market?  

    • A.

      Reverse Repo Rate

    • B.

      CRR

    • C.

      SLR

    • D.

      Bank Rate

    • E.

      All of these

    Correct Answer
    E. All of these
    Explanation
    All of these options can raise interest rates in the market. The reverse repo rate is the rate at which the central bank borrows money from commercial banks, and an increase in this rate leads to higher interest rates in the market. The cash reserve ratio (CRR) is the percentage of deposits that banks are required to keep with the central bank, and an increase in CRR reduces the amount of funds available for lending, leading to higher interest rates. The statutory liquidity ratio (SLR) is the percentage of deposits that banks are required to invest in government securities, and an increase in SLR also reduces the availability of funds for lending, resulting in higher interest rates. The bank rate is the rate at which the central bank lends money to commercial banks, and an increase in this rate directly affects the interest rates in the market. Therefore, all of these options can raise interest rates in the market.
