RBI Monetary Policy Rates

RBI Monetary Policy Rates Changes: The Monetary Policy Committee (on 4th May 2022) decided unanimously to remain accommodative while focusing on withdrawal of accommodation to ensure that inflation remains within the target going forward while supporting growth. In line with that-

  • There is an increase in the policy repo rate under the liquidity adjustment facility (LAF) by 40 basis points to 4.40 percent with immediate effect.
  • The standing deposit facility (SDF) rate stands adjusted to 4.15 percent and the marginal standing facility (MSF) rate and the Bank Rate to 4.65 percent.

These decisions are in consonance with the objective of achieving the medium-term target for consumer price index (CPI) inflation of 4 % within a band of +/- 2% while supporting growth.
