Market Stabilisation Scheme (MSS) annual ceiling increased

In accordance with the provisions of the Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) of the Market Stabilisation Scheme (MSS), the annual ceiling for 2007-08 is Rs.80,000 crore as against the annual ceiling of Rs.70,000 crore for 2006-07. The ceiling is subject to revision at a threshold level which has been fixed at Rs.70,000 crore for 2007-08.

It may be recalled that RBI had on March 2, 2007 announced modified arrangements for liquidity management. Under these arrangements, the Reserve Bank, subject to variations in liquidity, announce every Friday the possibility and the quantum of MSS issuances, covering the Treasury Bills and dated securities under MSS, for the succeeding week. These arrangements would continue until further notice.
