The Reserve Bank of India (RBI) has decided to maintain its key interest rate at 6.50% on June 8 and throughout the remainder of 2023. This decision comes as the RBI assesses the economic consequences of a series of rate hikes implemented over the past year. Although inflation reached a low point of 4.70% in April, it is anticipated that it will not align with the RBI’s medium-term target of 4% for at least another two years. Consequently, the likelihood of immediate rate cuts appears slim.
