India’s central bank leaves key rates unchanged

Mumbai, June 7 (IANS) The Reserve Bank of India (RBI) on Tuesday left its key policy rates and reserve ratios unchanged, concerned over the slight rise in inflation and some domestic and global upside risks that have sprung up since April.

The decision was taken at the second bi-monthly policy review for the current fiscal by Reserve Bank of India (RBI) Governor Raghuram Rajan at its headruarters here. “The inflation surprise in the April reading makes the future trajectory of inflation somewhat more uncertain,” Rajan said.

In the first bi-monthly policy review on April 5, Rajan had cut by 25 basis points the repurchase rate, or the short-term lending rate for commercial banks on loans taken from the Reserve Bank — to 6.5 per cent from 6.75 per cent.

The reverse repurchase rate for sort-term borrowings was raised to 6 per cent from 5.75 per cent.
