RBI has announced to increase the policy repo rate by 50 basis points, to 4.9%, to tame the rising inflation in the country. Notably, this is the second hike in five weeks. The decision has been taken during RBI's three-day Monetary Policy Committee (MPC) meeting. Furthermore, the Standing Deposit Facility (SDF) rate stands at 4.65%, and Marginal Standing Facility (MSF) rate at 5.15%.
Reserve Bank of India (RBI) Governor Shaktikanta Das, on December 8, announced that the repo rate will remain unchanged. "Consequently, the policy repo rate remains unchanged at 4% and the stance remains accommodative as long as necessary to revive and sustain growth on a durable basis" said Das. Furthermore, the marginal standing facility (MSF) rate and reverse repo rate at 4.25% and 3.35%, respectively, also remained unchanged.
