Summary
The large holdings of government securities by banks in India draw attention to their risk asinterest rates are at historical low levels. This paper measures such a risk using duration andvalue-at-risk methods and assesses its current management by banks. The main finding is thatsome public sector and old private banks are vulnerable to a reversal of the interest ratecycle, while foreign and new private banks have built adequate defenses. In this regard, thepaper makes a number of recommendations regarding government policies and individualbank practices to manage interest rate risk.
