Answer :

Money creation is the process by which a commercial bank creates total deposit number of times more than the initial deposit.


This process is based on 2 assumptions:


a.There is a single banking system in the country.


b. All the transactions are done through this bank.


The working of money creation is explained below:


Total money created = Money multiplier X initial deposits = 1/Legal reserve ratio X initial deposits



● The legal reserve ratio is 10%.


● The bank keeps Rs 1000 as a reserve and gives the remaining 9000 as loan which would come back to the bank in the form of deposits.


● Out of this 9000, the bank would keep 10%, (900) and the remaining 8100 would be extended as loans.


● Eventually:


Total deposit created = New deposit X 1/LRR


= 10000 X 1/10%


=100000
