RBI goes for status quo
Mumbai: To subdue unabatedly high inflation rate, the Reserve Bank of India (RBI) kept the key lending rates unchanged.
Accordingly, the Monetary Policy Committee of the central bank maintained the repo rate - or short-term lending rate for commercial banks, at 4 per cent.
The MPC voted to maintain accommodative stance, thus opening up possibilities for more future rate cuts.
