With the multifarious (many / various ) increase in the economic system money become the most acceptable means of transaction and payment of debt. The proportion of money which is not used in normal recurring transaction or is held in excess of the normal need is called “idle cash” The excess of the normal need is called “Idle cash” The continuous with drawl of money from the circular flow of income between the household individuals, firms and industries becenies so alarming and devastating; it deprive the users the great opportunity of making any meaningful and judicious use of idle cash.

The project work intend to highlight the pros and cons of the negative use of idle cash , constant flow of money in circulation , light interest rate and poor cross Domestic product (GDP) the research work will not only be in document for the accounts department.
