RBI Monetary Policy Meet: The Reserve Bank of India, or RBI, is all set to hold a press conference on April 8, Friday, on the decisions taken by it during its Monetary Policy Committee (MPC) meeting that had started from April 6 and will conclude today. The meeting will start at 10 am on the day, where RBI governor Shaktikanta Das announce the decisions taken by the central bank on revised economic projections and the interest rate trajectory.
Economists are expecting the central bank to keep its repo rates unchanged during the first RBI MPC meet of the current fiscal. According to a Reuters poll the RBI may only hike the interest rate in the August MPC meeting.
The six-member rate-setting panel is meeting at a crucial time when inflation rates have skyrocketed amid tensions between Russia and Ukraine — which has also resulted in the shooting up of fuel prices among others. Markets have also remained volatile of late. The prices of essential commodities have also skyrocketed and all these reasons have prompted the RBI Monetary Policy Committee (MPC) to focus on inflation rather than growth this time.
“We expect the MPC to start increasing the policy rates beginning with normalising the policy corridor between repo and reverse repo rate. We expect the RBI to hike the reverse repo rate in its April 2022 policy meeting,” said Brickworks Ranking.
