  • The repo rate, at which the RBI lends to banks, was cut to 5.75% from 6%, the lowest it’s been since 2010. The cash reserve ratio and statutory liquidity ratio remained unchanged. An ET poll of 28 analysts and economists had predicted a quarter point cut. The Reserve Bank of India lowered interest rates for the third time in succession — to a nine-year low—and shifted its monetary stance to ‘accommodative’ from ‘neutral’ to help revive the economy, which has slowed the most in five years. The shift in stance implies that more cuts are on the way as long as prices remain in check but industry and investors were disappointed by the absence of a special liquidity window for struggling nonbanking finance companies (NBFCs). Stocks and bond prices fell.
  • The Reserve Bank of India will constitute an internal working group to review its liquidity management framework to simplify the current framework and bring more clarity in the objectives and quantitative measures on banking liquidity. “While on the whole the current liquidity management framework has worked well, it has also become somewhat complex. An assessment of liquidity position by different market participants has varied markedly and is not always in sync with the actual systemic liquidity position in the economy.
