It is expected that the Monetary Policy Committee (MPC) will maintain the current interest rates due to the decline in Consumer Price Index (CPI) inflation. The most recent inflation figures have remained within the targeted range, which is in line with the previous policy’s indications. This is good news for the Reserve Bank of India (RBI) as the Indian Meteorological Department (IMD) has forecasted a normal monsoon, despite slight concerns about El Nino. This will serve as a favorable factor for the RBI.
Furthermore, there are no immediate concerns to be addressed as liquidity exceeds 1.00 lakh crores and the Weighted Average Call Rate (WACR) remains around 6.25%. This indicates that the economy is stable and there is no need for any immediate action.
In conclusion, the current economic situation in India is positive, with inflation remaining within the targeted range and a normal monsoon forecasted. The RBI can continue to maintain the current interest rates, and there are no immediate concerns to be addressed.
