Objectives of the course:

This paper is designed to acquaint the students about the concept of Money, and the theories of money supply and money demand determination in an economy.

It analyses then, how interest rates are determined, and how do they factor in maturity, risk and uncertainty of different assets leading to the Heterogeneity of interest rates. In the context of India, the evolution of the interest rate structure leading to an appropriate interest rate policy would be analysed particularly in a globalized economy where they are linked with international interest rates.

At the apex, the role of the Central Bank is extremely important particularly, in monetary policy making. The goals and targets are sought to be achieved using various instruments and techniques. The effectiveness of the monetary policy in an open economy depends on how the policy makers solve the problem they encounter.

A financial system is a complex of financial assets, financial markets and financial institutions or intermediaries to serve a designated purpose. The portfolio management of banks as financial intermediaries and their problems of capital adequacy are issues that need to be looked into just as the growing importance of non-banking intermediaries and their regulation.

The nature of Financial markets and its regulation have necessitated Financial sector reforms in India particularly in the phase of growing instability in the international monetary system leading to crisis and hence requiring reforms.
