    Expert view on RBI's policy outcome




    Commenting on RBI's stance, Vinod Nair, head of research at Geojit Financial Services, said, "It is a well-thought unanimous decision of RBI to give ample time for the transmission of five consecutive rate cuts undertaken since January 2019 and get better clarity on the inflation trajectory. With the slowdown in India getting more severe than expected and RBI cutting real GDP forecast to 5% from earlier 6.1% for FY20, we can expect more rate cuts depending on the evolving macro-economic data in the upcoming MPC meetings."

    He added,"We don’t expect this decision to completely change the trend of the market rather than consolidation in rate sensitive stocks in the short-term."

    Expert View: RBI policy outcome

    Commenting on the RBI policy outcome, Jimeet Modi, Founder & CEO of SAMCO Securities & StockNote said,"RBI has finally thrown the ball back in Government’s court to revive the economic engine which has further deteriorated since the last meet. Transmission of interest rates have not happened yet which could be one of the reasons RBI waited to cut rates and nudged the Government and banks to take efforts from their end."

    He added,"Additionally, slightly higher inflationary tendencies might have also led to the pause in rate cut. But, this is a negative for the markets as a rate cut was required to boost risk taking appetite in the economy."

    MPC: There is monetary policy space for future action

    The MPC board said it recognises that there is monetary policy space for future action. However, given the evolving growth-inflation dynamics, the MPC felt it appropriate to take a pause at this juncture. Accordingly, the MPC decided to keep the policy repo rate unchanged and continue with the accommodative stance as long as it is necessary to revive growth, while ensuring that inflation remains within the target.


    After the introduction of the external benchmark system, most banks have linked their lending rates to the policy repo rate of the Reserve Bank. The median term deposit rate has declined by 47 bps during February-November 2019. The weighted average term deposit rate declined by 9 bps in October as against a decline of just 7 bps in eight months during February-September. This augurs well for transmission to lending rates, going forward. The inflation print for October, however, was much higher than expected.
