New Delhi: The Reserve Bank of India started a two-day meeting on Tuesday 1 December for its monetary policy review. The decisions made in this meeting will be announced today. It is believed that this time the central bank will not make any change in policy rates.
That is, there is no possibility of relief in interest rates and EMI. The decision of RBI’s Monetary Policy Committee, which will directly affect the common man, will take place today.
No change in policy rates:
In such a situation, the Reserve Bank policy rates will not change. India’s GDP fell by 7.5 percent in the second quarter after falling by 24 percent in the first quarter. This was better than RBI’s estimate of 8.6 per cent decline.
After better than expected, RBI can modify the GDP forecast in this policy from -9.5% to -7 to -9%. Madan Sabnavis, chief economist at CARE Ratings, said inflation is still very high. In such a situation, the Reserve Bank has no option but to keep the policy rates unchanged.
M. Govinda Rao, Chief Economic Advisor, Brickwork Ratings, said that consumer price index (CPI) based inflation is now very high. In such a situation, no change in rates is expected from the MPC. Deepak Aggarwal, co-CEO of Moneybox Finance, said food and headline inflation remained high.
