Liquidity Coverage Ratio (LCR) standard has been introduced with the objective that a bank maintains an adequate level of unencumbered High Quality Liquid Assets (HQLAs) that can be converted into cash to meet its liquidity needs for a 30 calendar day time horizon under a significantly severe liquidity stress scenario.
Stock of high quality liquid assets (HQLAs)
LCR has been defined as: -
Total net cash outflow over the next 30 calendar days
Liquid assets comprise of high quality assets that can be readily encashed or used as collateral to obtain cash in a range of stress scenarios. There are two categories of assets included in the stock of HQLAs, viz. Level 1 and Level 2 assets. While Level 1 assets are with 0% haircut, Level 2A and Level 2 B assets are with 15% and 50% haircuts respectively. The total net cash outflow is the total expected cash outflows minus total expected cash inflows for the subsequent 30 calendar days. Total expected cash outflows are calculated by multiplying the outstanding balances of various categories or types of liabilities and off-balance sheet commitments by the rates at which they are expected to run off or be drawn down. Total expected cash inflows are calculated by multiplying the outstanding balances of various categories of contractual receivables by the rates at which they are expected to flow in up to an aggregate cap of 75% of total expected cash outflows.
In terms of RBI Circular FMRD.DIRD.10/14.03.002/2015-16 dated May 19,2016, the Bank has, with effect from October 3, 2016, considered its repo/ reverse repo transactions under Liquidity Adjustment Facility (LAF) and Marginal Standing Facility (MSF) of RBI as Borrowings/ Lending respectively as against the earlier practice of including the same under investments.

In view of the same, the Bank has commenced computation of the LCR on a daily basis from January 1, 2017 taking 64 data points. Note 2 : The above data represent simple average of monthly observations for the respective quarters.
The LCR position is above the minimum 80% prescribed by RBI. Bank’s LCR comes to 144.06% based on daily average of three months (Q4 FY16-17). The average HQLA for the quarter was Rs 5,10,555 Crs, of which, Level 1 assets constituted 93.49% of total HQLA. Government securities constituted 96.62% of Total Level 1 Assets. Level 2 A Assets constitutes 5.33% of total HQLA and Level 2B assets constitutes 1.18% of total HQLA. The net cash outflow position has gone up on account of growth of Balance Sheet size. Derivative exposures are considered insignificant due to almost matching inflows and outflows position. During the quarter, LCR for USD (significant Foreign Currency constituting more than 5% of the Balance Sheet of the Bank) was 87.45% on average.
Liquidity Management in the Bank is driven by the ALM Policy of the Bank and regulatory prescriptions.
