The Reserver Bank of India today (29th January 2013)  has reduced Repo Rate by a widely expected 25 basis points, taking comfort from cooling inflation as it made the first cut in nine months to support an economy headed for its slowest growth in a decade. So now the Repo Rate has become 7.75 Percent (earlier it was 8%).

And Unexpectedly the bank has also reduced the CRR (Cash Reserve Ratio), the share of deposits banks must keep with the central bank by 25 basic points. Now the CRR Became 4 percent (earlier it was 4.25%), which will infuse an additional 180 billion rupees into the banking system.

The RBI said there was increasing likelihood of inflation remaining rangebound around current levels heading into 2013/14 fiscal year starting April. "This provides space, albeit limited, for monetary policy to give greater emphasis to growth risks," it added in its quarterly monetary policy review.
