1 Introduction:

Monetary policy is the process by which the central bank of a country controls the supply of Money, the availability of money, and the cost of money or rate of interest, in order to attain a set of objectives oriented towards the growth and stability of the economy. Fiscal policy induced “demand management” approach as propagated by Keynes, which was popular in the post‐Great Depression period, later made way to monetary policy led “stabilization” approach in the period of high inflation of 1970s. While traditional fiscal policy solutions were useful in confronting unemployment by increasing spending and cutting taxes, counter‐acting inflation entailed reducing spending or raising taxes.

Also, considerable time may pass between the decisions to adopt a government spending programmer and its implementation. During the period of “Golden Growth” covering late 1980s till the recent past, in the mix of macroeconomic policies, monetary policy continued to reserve a place of prominence. However, in the backdrop of global financial meltdown and subsequent confusion in macroeconomic theories, a new quest has emerged in redefining the role and instruments of macroeconomic policy in fostering economic development. 1.1 origin of the report:
