INTRODUCTION In The business world it is always believed that Cash is King of all the other resources which is being used to run the business effectively and in the last two years of the business history it is accepted that cash management is necessary to be successful in the competitive business world. This acceptance came to the real field after the financial crisis and it has made all the people in the business world to think about cash and its management. The cash management is important as because when liquidity is scarce efficient cash management is vital for ensuring that every spare rupee has been fully utilized. Even in normal times, efficient cash management is crucial for the company, as lack of liquidity may result in inability to pay liabilities, increased costs, and worst case scenario, the company may end up in insolvency. Businesses fail for any number of reasons: Poor management, Poor product development, Weak marketing, and as evidenced by scores of accounting fraud cases, deliberate and egregious misuse of funds. But many companies still fail because of the poor management in the cash inflows and outflows. In other terms the importance of cash management is particularly pertinent at times when access to cash is difficult and expensive. A credit crunch creates extreme forms of both of these problems. When the real economy slips into recession, businesses face the additional risk of customers running into financial difficulty and becoming unable to pay invoices-which, allied to a scarcity of cash from non-operational sources such as bank loans, can push a company over the edge. As said the cash management is necessary for the business it is the management of cash inflows and outflows of the firm, as well as the stock of cash on hand (Fabozzi & Petersen, 2003,p.630). It consists of taking the necessary actions to maintain adequate levels of cash to meet operational and capital requirements and to obtain the maximum yield on short-term investments of pooled idle cash. Cash management can be categorized in to Short-term financial management and Long-term financial management. The Short-term financial management is otherwise called as liquidity or working capital management. And the Long-Term financial management deals with long term investments, as well as long term financing of the company in the capital market.

In an organization the Cash management is a part of the Treasury function which involves itself in financing, monitoring and controlling the financial resources of the company. Cash management can also be seen as part of risk management. And as in short to say about Cash management , it deals with managing a companys short term resourses in order to support and maintain its ongoing activities, mobilize funds and optimize liquidity (Allman-Ward & Sagner, 2003, p.2).
