The repo rate has been reduced by 25 bps to 6.0 per cent, reflecting the slightly accommodative stance that the Monetary Policy Committee has taken as it agreed that headline inflation has come down significantly.
While many inflation upside risks have not manifested themselves as yet, the MPC feels that inflation may trend upwards going forward based on farm loan waivers, states passing on increased salaries / allowances and expected pressures on food inflation. The RBI remains more committed to keeping inflationary pressures under check.
