Weapons of Credit Control (Qualitative Controls)

1. Direct Action: The central bank may take direct action against commercial banks that violate the rules, orders or advice of the central bank. This punishment is very severe of a commercial bank.

2. Moral persuasion: It is another method by which central bank may get credit supply expanded or contracted. By moral pressure it may prohibit or dissuade commercial banks to deal in speculative business.

3. Legislation: The central bank may also adopt necessary legislation for expanding or contracting credit money in the market.

4. Publicity: The central bank may resort to massive advertising campaign in the news papers, magazines and journals depicting the poor economic conditions of the country suggesting commercial banks and other financial institutions to control credit either by expansion or by contraction.
