RBI  raises repo  rate by 25 bps

The new Reserve Bank of India chief Raghuram Rajan announced his first monetary policy statement today  and said that high inflation is a cause for concern

RBI’s new governor Raghuram Rajan today bit the bullet by hiking the  repo rate by 25 basis points to 7.5%.

Economists had widely expected the RBI to leave the repo rate unchanged.

The central bank, however, reduced the Marginal Standing Facility (MSF) rate by 75 basis points to 9.5%.

The reverse repo rate stands adjusted at 6.5%.

RBI also reduced the minimum daily maintenance of the cash reserve ratio (CRR) from 99% of the requirement to 95% effective from the fortnight beginning September 21, while keeping the CRR unchanged at 4%.
