RBI's MPC retains rates, accommodative stance
Mumbai, October 8, 2021
The Reserve Bank of India (RBI) retained its key short-term lending rates during the October monetary policy review of FY22.
Besides, the growth-oriented accommodative stance was retained to give a push to economic activity.
Accordingly, the Monetary Policy Committee (MPC) of the central bank voted to maintain the repo rate, or short-term lending rate, for commercial banks, at 4 per cent.
Likewise, the reverse repo rate was kept unchanged at 3.35 per cent, and the marginal standing facility (MSF) rate and the Bank Rate at 4.25 per cent.
It was widely expected that MPC would hold rates and the accommodative stance.
