Any business or financial activity start with cash, cash is one form of liquidity where people do lot of activity in regular ba7sis. Without cash any business activity will immovable. Business will start with cash and also end up with cash, so cash is bloodline for every business. Any manufacture or service oriented form should hold optimum cash balances; it will help them manage the day to day happenings in well manner so that they can avoid future liquidity risk.

The another factor is company should not hold too much cash as well as it should not hold too low because if it managing with too high the possibility of cash remains idle and too low might cause shortage in investment; so balancing the cash is a tricky as well as confidential matter, thus the key task of financial manager is maintaining the optimum cash balance forever.

Cash is the liquidity where we use it immediate payment and collection purposes. The cash normally include notes, coin and even Cheques, other than this saleable securities and deposits which are maintaining in bank also considered as cash. The marketable securities and advances are measured as cash because it is easily converted to cash.

2.1 Motives for holding cash
The company should maintain enough cash for following motives:
Transaction motive
Precautionary motive
Speculative motive
Transaction Motive
The word itself says that the cash maintaining or holding for the transaction purpose is generally known as transaction motive. There is usually time duration in collection and payment of cash in business course but firm should able to maintain the enough cash even though it unable to collect the fund in time. For the purpose only company sometimes relay on the marketable securities where it can easily meets its cash requirements.
Precautionary Motive
Precautionary motive is tells about the company should manage the cash balances to meets it emergency requirement. Where firm should maintain the optimum cash balances to prevent the uncertainty of future. Each and every business should keep precautionary cash balance in order to avoid the several internal and external uncertain factors. Most of the tire companies invest these precautionary cash in marketable securities where it can sale it immediately whenever it feels that to avoid the future vagueness.

Speculative Motive
Cash which held by the firm for long period in order make the profit in future is generally called as a speculative motive. This could be done because to increase the inventory or something else. But most of the firm is concentrate on the transaction motive and precautionary motive than speculative motive.
2.2 Cash Planning
Cash is valuable things which take place in every business activity and it must need to succeed firm’s business strategies. Every firm plan or forecast its current and future cash flows so that it manages the cash requirement in well mode. Cash planning is technique that helps company to manage and use of cash in effective way. Cash planning helps to the company to forecast the cash prerequisite and effective utilization as well as collection of funds from various sources.

Any business success and failure also depends on the effective utilization cash. If company has surplus cash it should invest in other field instead of keeping the same; also whenever company feels that shortage of cash it should able to accumulate from various field then only cash planning will work in good way.

Cash planning not only deals about the current cash operation but also tells about the future cash necessity. For this purpose company needs to identify what are its weekly and monthly cash flows so that it can avoid future cash scarcity.

2.3 Cash Forecasting and Budgeting
Cash forecasting is identifying the cash outflows and cash inflow in advance. Basically most of the company forecast the cash requirement in monthly or weekly basis, it is also depends on the size of the company like medium, small and large sized companies. Cash budgeting is making cash arrangement in advance. Cash budgeting is purely depends on the cash requirement analysis for future it includes cash inflow and cash outflow forecasting. Cash requirement is Changes Company to company and industry to industry it also rely on the cyclical changes.

Generally two types of cash forecast we could see i.e
Long term cash forecasting
Short term cash forecasting
Long term cash forecasting
Long term cash forecasting are not like short term cash forecasting because short term cash forecasting rely on less than one year’s cash forecast but long term cash forecast is back on the near five years cash planning. When company deals with big proposals or projects, it go for identify the long term cash outflows and cash inflows because in order to meet working capital requirement. The main purposes of long term cash forecast are:
To identify the working capital financial needs.

To appraise the cash flow from particular projects and its contribution to company development.

Also to identify the cash requirement for particular proposal and its outcome in the form of cash.

Short term cash forecasting
Most of the short term cash forecasting is between one year and less than one year. It depends on the cash requirement to the operating activity its expectation. The main purpose of short term cash forecasting is identify the divisional cash movement in the organization and cash requirement to the various branch.

Various benefits of short term cash forecasting
It is an idea to decrease the both short term and long term liability.

It helps to arrange the payment of various projects and business proposals.

To find the correctness of long term and short term cash flows.

It is administrative elements to the credit policies.

Cash management is comprehensive term that refers to gathering, absorption, and distribution of cash. It is company’s strategy that company adopt effective utilization of its available liquidity and investment in short term financial instruments. But recent year technology development made every financial institution work in easy way, the collection and disbursement of cash not big challenges to the company. All the banking transaction now takes place in effective mode with help of technology so that NBFCs or any bank can do its day to day work in most efficient method. The ultimate purpose of cash management is to avoid the cost and advance the revenue, increasing the profit of the company.

In India recent year we could see that effective implementation technology in banking and other financial sectors which changes the whole banking collecting and payment system also reduces the time span of collection and payment. Reserve Bank of India (RBI) had executed several banking electronic system in that RTGS (Real Time Gross Settlement), NEFT (National Electronic Fund Transfer) and ECS (Electronic Clearing Service) are one of the most popular and currently using systems. These are systems not only helps bank but also to the people to do banking transaction in daily basis. RBI had issued several regulations in order manage and control the foreign exchange as well as it has bird eye detail on cash inflow and outflow from different countries. This made Indian financial institution to manage and control the cash in effective way.

Several other factors which implemented by RBI and Government are:
Government has implemented an integrated funds administration service which helps to control the cash outflow and inflow.

Intra bank and inter-bank messaging services made banks and customer work simple and reduces the time as well cost.

Managing the cash is not as simple as managing the other assets because of the variability in the cash position, generally balancing the cash inflows and cash outflows is one complex function where financial manger needs to care and take necessary steps for the same in timely manner.

Most of the time company faces the challenges regarding cash because of sometimes payment more than receipts or vice versa, so maintaining enough cash without wasting is difficult one. For managing the cash company should concentrate on the basic two point i.e
Cash inflow and outflow of the firm.

Cash flows inside the company and cash balances in a particular time span.

Cash management has several feature or facets which helps the company to formulate the strategies based on that features, following are the numerous features which included in the cash management.

1. Optimum utilization of operating cash
Rapid changes in the business operation make the cash transaction very speed and promptness and utilizing the cash in such way that which create quick growth in operating activity and should get the profit from the same. For this purpose company should regulate the cash transaction by implementing the guidelines and bylaws in the company.

2. Cash forecasting
Any business or company its difficult analyze the what is future cash inflows and outflows for this purpose company just roughly forecast what is the future incoming and outgoing so that it can avoid the future cash complexity with help of prior cash forecast. Absence of cash planning may results the irregular cash flows.

3. Cash management techniques
Cash management is one technique that supports to the company to accumulate the fund from various sources it may be from the collection and from other sources. But normally company concentrates on its collections and payments. Organization always more thinks on the collection rather than payments because of the several reasons that if company fails to the collection of the fund which had been given by the company it may suffer the huge loss. From above reason company focuses on the some of the techniques.

4. Liquidity analysis
Attaining the liquidity always in the financial transaction is difficult job for this purpose normally company focus on liquidity level for this company go for the liquidity analysis it evaluate the position of liquidity in the financial position. If company neglects liquidity position it may undergo financial crises.
5. Profitable deployment of surplus funds
If the company’s cash inflows more than outflows then company enjoys the surplus of funds and it aids the company to utilize the available fund in efficient way. However its most of the time depends on the company’s financial healthiness and performance also it is not quite sure that company always enjoys the surplus fund it may undergo for deficit of funds, so managing the cash flows is complex in financial environment.

6. Economical borrowing
Another facet of cash management economical borrowing, when company suffers from deficit finance it can approach several field to get low cost finance. Economical borrowing is also same that company avoid the high cost financing sources and always go for the low cost financing availability some times within a country or from abroad.

1. Baumol model of cash management
The Baumol model explains the way of maintaining the optimum cash balances in certainty. The model tells about the cost reducing technique while holding the cash and other saleable securities. The model which is developed by the W.J. Baumol is related to the inventory management complications, for this purpose the model concentrates on the some of the basic things that is holding cost, transaction cost and total cost.

Assumption of the Baumol’s Model
The company estimates its cash requirements with certainty.

The company’s cash payment arises consistently over a period of time.

The company’s opportunity cost of having cash is to be identified and it will not change over the period.

Whenever company converts its saleable securities in to cash the firm enjoys the equal transaction cost.

Let discuss the above model with help one example
The company selling its saleable securities in the market and company has its cash balances it considered as C rupees. When company employs its cash the availability of cash will start to decreases. If company continues the same the cash will slowly decreases once more. The average cash availability then considered as C/ 2. It presented with help of following diagram.

36195079374 C
37147551435 C/2 Average
01676400 O T1 T2 T3
Holding cost
When the company holds and preserves the cash balances and cost incurs for the same, then it’s called holding cost. It is also considered as opportunity cost (K).

Holding cost = k(C/2)
Transaction cost
Normally cost incurs for the transaction purpose then it is considered transaction cost. Company experiences this cost while transforming the saleable securities into cash. Number of transaction takes place in a specific year is noted with (T), and that will be divided by the availability of cash (C) that is T/C.

Transaction cost = c (T/C)
Total cost
It is the total sum of annual cost which is needed for cash.

Total cost = k(C/2) + c (T/C)
Optimum level of cash balances
Optimum cash balances (C*) that is the when the company demands for the cash the holding cost start rising, though the cost incurs for the transaction purpose will get reduces why because rise in the C, and quantity of transaction takes place will reduce. So there is a connection between the holding cost and transaction cost.

The following diagram demonstrates the same:
2095501365251524001111250 Cost
Total cost
1428759398015335255588015239946355 Holding cost
Transaction cost

1524007556500 Cash balances
Limitation of the Baumol model:
1) There is no fluctuating in cash flow.

2) Overdraft is avoided and uncertainty in upcoming cash flow.

2. Miller-Orr Model for Cash Management
Generally company maintains the cash in hand in order to avoid the future discomfort in cash position but Baumol model doesn’t concentrate the daily cash flow but the Miller-Orr model overwhelms from some of the drawbacks of the Baumol models and permits the day-to-day cash flow variations. The Miller-Orr calculated the spread among the upper and lower cash flow restrictions.

Formula for calculate the Miller-Orr Model is
499110027495419050274955190502749550Z = (3/4 x Transaction Cost x Cash Flow Variance/ Interest per day) 1/3
228600156209 Cash balances

MO model considered as more accurate because which agrees variation in cash remaining. The upper limits and lower limits also to be evaluated within the cash availability. The historical facts and figures of cash are to be measured.

Cash management maintained by the company several reasons but the main purpose of the cash management is to identify the sources and disbursement of cash so that avoid the future scarcity of cash. Some of the purposes of cash management as follow…
To identify the remaining cash availability and effective utilization of cash, evaluation of different sources of cash and investment opportunities.

To analyze the shortage of cash and efficient arrangement for the same.

To collect the credits timely so that avoids the liquidity risk.

They further added that cash management is a vigorous mission because it is the utmost important yet least dynamic asset that a small business owns. A commercial must have sufficient cash to encounter its commitments or it will be professed insolvent. Creditors, employees and lenders supposed to be paid on time and cash is the obligatory intermediate of exchange.

Waltson and Head (2007) elucidated Cash management as the idea which is worried with optimizing the amount of cash presented, exploiting the attention received by additional funds not required immediately and dropping losses caused by suspensions in the spread of funds. In adding the Net cash flow is then planned as entire cash earnings subtract whole cash payments. The initial cash equilibrium is following auditioned to net cash flow in order to attain at the final cash balance. Adventurously, if the final cash balance is optimistic, then additional cash may be capitalized in merchantable securities. If the final cash balance is undesirable, then supplementary funding may be essential.

Mclaney (2000) cash is considerably more than just one component of working capital. As the intermediate of conversation and accumulation of value, cash delivers the connection among all monetary phases of the firm. More precisely it associates short-and long-term financing judgments with one another, with assessments involving speculation mutually in immovable assets and working capital. It is accurately applied to accomplish and control the ideal level of cash mandatory for the corporate process and capitalized in saleable securities, which is appropriate for the environment of the business process series.

Drury (1994) defined the purpose of the cash planning is to confirm that adequate cash is obtainable at all periods to encounter the stages of actions that are bounded in the numerous budgets. He added proclaims that because cash budgeting is focus to vagueness, it is essential to deliver for more than the lowest aggregate of cash mandatory, to permit for some boundary of mistake in planning.

Keynes (1973) explains the situations on the reason for allotment cash are purely transaction, precautionary and speculative reasons. Corporations maintain cash in order to channel the recess between the period of experiencing commercial charge and that of the receiving of the sale-proceeds. In other way, establishments maintain an assured amount of cash in order to encounter the consistent expenses of their movement. Hence, the developed firm’s aptitude to plan its cash flows, the weedier the transactions object for allotment cash would be one fact. The transaction intention demonstrates the cash allotment of organizations and thus more appropriate to SMEs.

Weston and Copeland (2008) specified that businesses essential a cash backup in order to equilibrium its short term cash incomings and outgoing subsequently these are not exactly coordinated. This they mentioned to as the transactions object for keeping the cash, where the estimated dimension of the cash can be projected by predicting cash inflows and outflows and by formulating cash plans. In adding to the cash backup held for daily working needs, cash may be made up to encounter substantial estimated cash outflows, for example rising from an investment venture or the redemption of debt.

Dong and Tay Su (2010) also make an effort to scrutinize the affiliation prevailing among profitability, the cash conversion cycle and its mechanisms for registered firms in Vietnam stock market. Via an expressive cross sectional project, their outcomes presented a robust undesirable connection among profitability, dignified over gross operating profit, and the cash exchange cycle and all of its mechanisms. This means that as the cash exchange cycle upswings, it will prime to lessening of productivity of a firm. Hence, the administrators can generate an optimistic worth for the shareholders by managing the satisfactory cash exchange cycle and maintaining both diverse element to a most favorable level.

Cash ratio = Cash + Marketable securities / Current Liabilities
Table no 4.1.1 is showing cash ratio Amounts in lakh
Year, 2012-13, 2013-14, 2014-15, 2015-16, 2016-17,

4.7 Correlation:
Correlation is well-defined as the “propensity of two or more collections or a sequence of objects to fluctuate together openly or in reverse. Correlation can be positive or negative. When the standards of two variables interchange in the same route correlation is said to be positive.

Co-efficient of correlation:
It is an arithmetical technique of computing the correlation. Under this method we measure the correlation by ruling a value known as the co-efficient of correlation. It shows the degree or extent of correlation between two variables.

Karl Pearson’s Co-efficient of correlation:
Several scientific methods of measuring correlation the Karl pearsons method, popularly known as Pearson’s co-efficient of correlation, is most widely used in practice. The pearsons co-efficient of correlation is denoted by the symbol “r”.

Formula for calculating Karl Pearson’s Co-efficient of correlation:
r = Pearson r correlation coefficient N= number of observations ?xy = sum of the products of paired scores ?x = sum of x scores ?y = sum of y scores ?x2= sum of squared x scores ?y2= sum of squared y scores
