The meeting of the six-member Monetary Policy Committee headed by RBI Governor Shaktikanta Das will conclude this morning with the policy announcement scheduled for 10 a.m. Mr. Das is also scheduled to address a press conference at 12 noon.

It may be recalled that the committee has kept the interest rates unchanged in its last three reviews, maintaining repo rate at four per cent and the reverse repo rate at 3.35 per cent.

The RBI had last revised its policy rate on 22nd of May last year; to perk up demand by cutting interest rate to a historic low. RBI can take support from the Economic Survey which expects a rebound of the economy with a 11 per cent growth in the next fiscal.

The policy gains a lot of significance as it is being presented in the backdrop of the most welcomed Union Budget by all the sectors in the country. The committee had kept the interest rates unchanged in its last three reviews, so it will be interesting to see what kind of stand is taken by the Monetary Policy Committee this time.

It may be recalled that the committee has kept the interest rates unchanged in its last three reviews, maintaining repo rate at four per cent and the reverse repo rate at 3.35 per cent.

The RBI had last revised its policy rate on 22nd of May 2020; to perk up demand by cutting interest rate to a historic low.
