The Reserve Bank of India has kept the repo rate unchanged at 4 percent for the fifth time, maintaining an accommodative monetary policy stance to support growth and keep the inflation at the targeted level, Governor Shaktikanta Das said on Wednesday, 7 April. The reverse repo rate stands at 3.35 percent.
The projection of real GDP growth for 2021-22 has been retained at 10.5 percent, he said.
However, he pointed out that the recent surge in COVID-19 cases has created uncertainty over the economic growth recovery amid tightening of restrictions by some state governments.
