RBI Dec 4 policy: CNBC-TV18's Citizens’ MPC says rate cut unlikely

Updated : December 01, 2020 12:49:54 IST

The Monetary Policy Committee (MPC) meets in a context of shifting sands -- growth is not as bad as the RBI thought. GDP at -7.5 percent versus the -9.8 percent the last MPC had gone with, but the October inflation at 7 percent is way higher than the MPC’s mandate.

Arguably, even more important, in the money market, yields on Treasury Bill (T-Bill) and some commercial papers (CPs) are even below the reverse repo rate. So what should the RBI and the Monetary Policy Committee do when they meet on December 4?
