“The RBI is signalling that they are yet uncomfortable with inflation and as expected, there was no change in policy rates. The RBI have instead shifted focus on the Forex and make it more friendly for FIIs.”
“I feel the focus needs to shift from interest rates to liquidity in the interim. Many participants are accessing the MSF at 9% from the RBI and the market borrowing from the RBI under all facilities, including MSF, Repo, and LAF is over Rs. 1.5 lac crore, for effective transmission of policy rates. But over the next few months, we hope the rates move down a bit, even if for signalling purpose, to improve the sentiment for growth.”
