  16. I have exam on 22nd jan. If there will be question on Repo Rate or something else. What should I mark old one or new one? And please share SBI associated exam reviews. Please

  17. sorry you asked madam but i am interfering. In case of repo rate, bank sells govt. securities to the reserve bank with an obligation to purchase it at the specified rate which is 7.75 at the moment. so if bank sells securities at Rs. 1000 then it has to repurchase at Rs. 1775. In bank rate bank doesnt has to sell any security. Repo rate is usually for short duration (overnight) for meeting daily interest or other requirements. Bank rate is for longer duration. Bank rate is 1% higher than repo rate
