Treasury - Call Money / Notice Money / Term Money


The money market primarily facilitates lending and borrowing of funds between banks and entities like Primary Dealers (PDs). Banks and PDs borrow and lend overnight or for the short period to meet their short term mismatches in fund positions. This borrowing and lending is on unsecured basis. ‘Call Money’ is the borrowing or lending of funds for 1day. Where money is borrowed or lend for period between 2 days and 14 days it is known as ‘Notice Money’. And ‘Term Money’ refers to borrowing/lending of funds for period exceeding 14 days.
