The organized market is regulated by the RBI where as the unorganized marked is regulated by the domestic bankers and money lenders.SEASONALITYThe money market of India is mainly dependent on the seasons  because a major part of Indian population id mainly dependent on agriculture. Therefore during the busy season the demand for the money increases whereas during off season the demand decreases for the money.MULTIPLICITY OF INTEREST RATESIn India we consists of different levels of interest rates. These interest rates may differ from bank to bank even they might be different from one borrower to the other.LACK OF ORGANISED BILL MARKETDespite of the fact that the reserve bank of India had already introduced the bill market scheme but the billing culture had not yet been adopted in India.LIMITED INTRUMENTSIn the Indian money market the supply of money market instruments such as treasury bills, commercial papers, certificate of deposits, commercial papers etc. These money market instruments are not sufficient in order to satisfy the needs of the lenders and borrowers.DRAWBACKS OF INDIAN MONEY MARKETABSENCE OF INTEGRATIONAs the Indian money market consists of two markets organized market and unorganized market.
