The Monetary Policy Committee (MPC) in its sixth bi-monthly policy
review kept key policy repo rate unchanged at 6.0% and also retained its
“neutral” stance. Consequently, the reverse repo rate stood unaltered at
5.75%, and the marginal standing facility (MSF) rate and bank rate each
remained at 6.25%. Five policymakers were in favour of the monetary
policy decision and one advocated for a policy rate increase of 25 bps.
According to the fifth bi-monthly policy, inflation was expected in the
range of 4.3%-4.7% in second half of FY18, including House Rent
Allowance (HRA) impact. Meanwhile, headline inflation averaged 4.6% in
the third quarter, owing to an unusual increase in food prices in Nov 2017.
Meanwhile, though prices eased in Dec 2017, winter seasonal food price
moderation was less than usual. Also, prices of petrol and diesel surged in
Jan 2018. Considering these factors, MPC expects inflation to be 5.1% in
the fourth quarter, including the HRA impact. According to MPC, inflation
is expected in the range of 5.1%-5.6% in the first half of FY19, including
diminishing statistical HRA impact of central government employees, and
in the range of 4.5%-4.6% in the second half, with risks tilted to the
MPC lowered the real Gross Value Added (GVA) growth for 2017-18
from 6.7% to 6.6%. According to the committee, while Goods and Services
Tax (GST) implementation is stabilising, thereby augmenting well for
economic activity. Also, according to MPC, there are early signs of revival
in investment activity as reflected in improving credit offtake and
improving capital goods production and imports. MPC stated that the
process of recapitalization of public sector banks has got underway with
large distressed borrowers being referenced for resolution under the
Insolvency and Bankruptcy Code. This is expected to improve credit flows
further and create demand for fresh investment.
