Monetary policy remains on expected lines even with respect to reverse repo rate : Pan

Kolkata, Dec 8 (UNI) Indranil Pan, Chief Economist, YES BANK, commenting on the RBI Monetary policy, today said, " Monetary policy remains on expected lines, even with respect to the reverse repo rate. "
" RBI paints a relatively docile picture on inflation for now whilst it wants to ‘assiduously’ nurture growth to make it ‘self-sustaining’. Immediate risks to growth as seen from the Omicron is one specific factor that allows RBI to stay on a status-quo for now. RBI keeps the door ajar, but would probably be more patient on inflation being slightly on the higher side than growth on the faltering side, " he added.
