Investors will today keep a close on the Reserve Bank of India’s (RBI) Monetary Policy Committee (MPC) action announcement. The MPC is expected to hike the policy rate once again today and many economists are projecting a 50 basis point hike. It will also be interesting to hear RBI Governor Shaktikanta Das’ comments on inflation, economic growth, liquidity, and further rate hikes. With a 50 basis point rate hike, the repo rate will be back at 5.4% — the pre-pandemic levels. The MPC may find some comfort in the falling commodity prices but inflation still remains above the RBI’s tolerance band.
