RBI’s Monetary Policy | Mr Rajesh Sharma, MD, Capri Global Capital Ltd.Today’s announcements by RBI to keep the repo rate unchanged after a total 250 bps increment since May 2022 is an encouraging sign to keep the positive sentiment of borrowers and would give a big boost to demand for credit appetite. It will help to stabilize the interest rate cycle. There will be a collective sigh of relief from homeowners since they have been feeling the strain of increased interest rates and longer loan terms. The pause in the rate cycle will also aid relief for MSME borrowers who are yet to recover from the pandemic stress and higher cost of borrowing. We believe RBI is evaluating trends in inflation and the movement of high-frequency indicators and global developments like a hawk to exercise a measured approach during this period in order to pave the way for sustainable economic growth and stability in the long run.
