Why is it being expressed that the rate of increase in the country is being estimated
In a research paper by Bank of Baroda, it has been informed that in the current year (2022), the US central bank Federal Reserve has increased interest rates by 225 basis points or 2.25 percent. On the other hand, in comparison to this in India, the RBI has so far increased the policy rates by 0.90 percent this year. On the basis of this, it can be assumed that RBI still has full opportunities to increase interest rates and these can be used by the central bank of the country.
What is brokerage house estimate
Swiss brokerage company UBS Securities estimates that the central bank may increase the repo rate by 0.25 percent to 0.30 percent in the MPC meeting. Let us inform that earlier in May, 0.40 percent and in June, 0.50 percent was increased by RBI. After this the repo rate is currently at 4.90 percent.
These matters will be discussed in the meeting of RBI’s Monetary Policy Committee.
In the meeting of the Monetary Policy Committee of the Reserve Bank, the issue of rising inflation in the country will be discussed. Apart from this, MPC members will deliberate on the current economic scenario.
Interest rates may come to the level before the corona period
RBI has currently kept the repo rate at 4.90 percent, which is 0.25 percent less than the rate of 5.15 percent before the corona period. In order to support the country’s economy during the Corona period, the process of cutting the repo rate, which was continued by the RBI, is now being stopped and the process of increasing the rates has started. Mainly RBI’s focus is on preventing inflation rate from rising and for this RBI governor can take steps.
