Abstract

Based on the money-in-the-utility function, this paper intends to examine the stability of the currency demand function for India with real private consumption expenditure, tax-GDP ratio and deposit rate as explanatory variables by applying the seasonal cointegration technique developed by EGHL (1993) and HEGY (1990) for the period 1996:1 to 2014:4. The empirical findings show that there is absence of long-run cointegrationg relationship among the variables at the zero and annual frequency, however, there is evidence of a relationship among the variables at the biannual frequency. Moreover, the time-varying coefficient of deposit rate elasticity, used to test the Gurley-Shaw hypothesis, suggests that innovations in financial markets, especially improvements in the payment technology, raises the deposit rate elasticity, beginning from 2010 onward.
