The Loan to Deposit ratio of deposit money banks fell by o.5% to reflect a ratio of 74.9 at the end of 2016. Regardless the existing ratio remains high and similar to that of the 2010 episode. Thus it poses a risk to the regulatory micro prudential threshold of 8o. Certainly such levels do not only exacerbate pro-cyclical lending and surfeit liquidity, it could trigger systemic risk. Therefore improved vigilance and supervision by the apex bank is necessary at this point.
