Q11. Statement-The Reserve Bank of India’s decision to keep the policy interest rate unchanged, and reaffirm its “neutral” policy stance, clearly indicates that policymakers at the central bank are singularly focussed on their primary remit of ensuring price stability while supporting economic growth.
What can be the possible reason for RBI’s decision?
(I)The RBI remains concerned that a rate cut at this juncture might need to be reversed out next year if inflation returns to the upper end of the 2-6 per cent range."
(II)Tension had been brewing between the central bank and the government for some time over several issues.
(III)RBI, however, on Wednesday lowered its inflation projection to the 2-3.5% range for the first half of the current financial year and 3.5-4.5% in the second half of the current financial year.
(IV)The RBI is likely to wait for the July 1 roll-out of GST (Goods and Services Tax) and assess the impact of the new tax regime on inflation before moving on rates.
Only I and II
Only III
Only I and IV
Only III and IV
Only II and III
Solution:
For I-True, because It can be a reason of this constant policy interest rate as It might be possible that if RBI cuts the rate now then it will affect the next year inflation targets as it is given in the statement that RBI is now focusing on price stability while supporting economic growth. For II- False, because rift between central bank and government cannot be a reason of unchanged policy rates. For III- False, because it is only the data of inflation targets for I and II half of current financial year. For IV- True, because it is possible that RBI is waiting for GST rollout to see its impact on present economic condition of the country and then accordingly the policy rates may be changed by it.

Which of the following will be the course of action?
Only I
