Chapter: Money and Banking in India


Money is anything, which is generally acceptable as means of payment in the settlement of all transactions, including debt. It is the commonly used as medium of exchange. It has power to purchase things directly in all markets. It does not require to be converted into something else before it can be spent or used. General acceptability as the common means of payment is the distinctive characteristic of money.


Medium of Exchange

  • It is a characteristic that distinguishes money from other assets (near-money or non-money). All other functions of money are derived from this primary function.
  • Without money, exchange will involve a direct barter of goods and services for goods and services. It always promotes transactional efficiency in exchange and allocation efficiency.

Unit of Account

  • This function of money is also variously known as unit of value, standard of value, common denominator of value and common measure of value.
  • In terms of money, the values of all goods and services are expressed which ensures possible meaningful accounting systems by adding up the values of goods and services, e.g. National income estimates of a country, money cost of a project, etc.

Standard of Deferred Payment

  • Money serves as a standard or unit through which deferred or future payments can be made. This applies to payments of interest, rents, salaries, insurance premium etc.
  • In a money-using system, the bulk of deferred payments are stipulated in money terms.

Store of Value

This function is derived from the use of money as a medium of exchange in a two-fold manner. First, it decomposes a single barter transaction into two separate transactions of purchase and sale. Second, in money-using system, incomes in the form of wages, salaries, rent, interest and profits are money payments received discontinuously.

The above concept is taken from IBPS PO Exam 2013: General Awareness Study Material (E Book).
