RBI's Monetary Policy Committee Leaves Repo Rate Unchanged at 4%

The Reserve Bank of India's (RBI's) six-member monetary policy committee, headed by Governor Shaktikanta Das, announced the outcome of its bi-monthly monetary policy review yesterday.

Given the rise in the spread of coronavirus and the imposition of fresh restrictions to contain the virus spread, the RBI decided to maintain status quo on the benchmark repo rate, the rate at which the central bank lends short-term funds to banks, at 4%. It also kept the accommodative monetary stance unchanged today to nurture a fragile economic recovery.

The policy announcement, the first for the fiscal, came days after the government maintained the RBI's target to ensure inflation within the 2-6% band for five more years.

It also fulfilled a long-standing demand of bond market participants of having an open market operations (OMO) calendar of sorts, through which the central bank would commit its periodic support to the market.

RBI Governor Shaktikanta Das said in his monetary policy statement for April that the RBI will pre-announce a secondary market government securities (G-Sec) acquisition programme to commit its support to the market. For the first quarter, it will buy bonds worth Rs 1 trillion from the secondary market, starting April 15, when it will buy bonds worth Rs 250 billion.
