restrictions in parts of the country. Weak global cues also weighed on
market sentiments amid concerns about the outlook of U.S. inflation
following the recent advance in bond yields.
Key benchmark indices S&P BSE Sensex and Nifty 50 lost 2.25% and 2.04%
to close at 49,744.32 and 14,675.70 respectively.

According to minutes from the Reserve Bank of India (RBI), India's economic
growth momentum needs to strengthen further. The RBI decided to keep
the benchmark interest rate unchanged at 4% during the monetary policy
meeting, but retained an accommodative posture, suggesting rate cuts in
the future if necessary to help the Covid-19 pandemic's effect on the
economy. RBI remains committed to ensuring the availability of sufficient
liquidity in the economy, consistent with the accommodative role of
monetary policy, in order to foster congenial financial conditions, such that
recovery can gain traction.
According to media reports, India is expected to clear up China's 45

$2 billion from China have been stuck in the pipeline.

1.60% in Mar 2021, driven by slippages in unsecured loans, particularly from
private sector banks.
