Comment on RBI Policy by Mohit Ralhan TIW Private Equity
RBI announced no change in repo-rate while majority of market experts were looking for at least 25 basis points cut. The government trying to help many sectors facing decline in demand with steps taken by finance ministry. However, the trouble for the central bank is different. Taming inflation is a priority for majority of central banks across the world.
The banks have enough of liquidity but the disbursal of loans is low due to already high level of NPAs. RBI has to keep the balance by carefully setting repo-rates.
