The role of cash reserve ratio in controlling credit creation is mentioned below:
● Cash Reserve Ratio or CRR is the percentage of deposits which commercial banks keep with the central banks, in accordance with the law.
● If the CRR is increased, the banks have to keep a higher share of deposits in the central banks.
● This will reduce the funds kept with them to give out as loans.
● Thus, the level of credit creation reduces.
