In its monetary policy review, the Reserve Bank of India (RBI) today (29th September 2015) cut its interest rate by 0.50 per cent, double of what was broadly anticipated and the biggest in more than three years. The cut brought down Repo rate to 6.75 per cent, the lowest in four-and-half-years. RBI reduced the Key Rate (Repo) by 50 basis points from 7.25 per cent to 6.75 per cent with immediate effect. The Reverse Repo Rate stands at 5.75 percent. The RBI has kept the CRR (Cash Reserve Ratio) unchanged at 4 percent. It also relaxed norms for home loan seekers. The central bank cut the GDP forecast to 7.4 per cent for the current fiscal to 7.6 per cent while projecting retail inflation at 5.8 per cent for January. Within minutes of RBI policy announcement, Andhra Bank cut its benchmark lending rates by 0.25 per cent. State Bank of India (SBI) slashed minimum lending or base rate by 0.4 per cent to 9.3 per cent. The other banks are likely to follow suit.
