What came as a pleasant surprise to the street, was the reduction in cash reserve ratio (CRR) of scheduled banks by 25 basis points from 4.25 per cent to 4.0 per cent of their net demand and time liabilities (NDTL) effective the fortnight beginning February 9, 2013, a move that would release around Rs 18,000 crore of primary liquidity into the banking system.
