RBI cuts repo rate by 0.25%; may not result in lower loan rates Mumbai: In a move that may not bring any relief to home and car loan seekers, the RBI on Friday cut the interest rate by a meagre 0.25 percent and kept cash reserve ratio (CRR) unchanged on concerns of inflation, disappointing industry and stock markets. Reserve Bank's decision to cut interest for the third time since January as part of the annual credit policy, evoked a cautious response from Finance Minister P Chidambaram who said, "lets accept what has been done today". The bank lowered the short-term lending (repo) rate to 7.25 percent from 7.50 percent, lowest since May 2011 while retaining the CRR for banks unchanged at 4 percent.
RBI Governor D Subbarao while unveiling the annual monetary policy pegged the growth rate for the current fiscal at a conservative level of 5.7 percent saying, "economic activity during the current year is expected to show only a modest improvement over last year, with a pick-up likely only in the second half of the year." Speaking on the impact of the rate cut on retail and corporate loans, Pratip Chaudhuri, chairman of the country's largest lender State Bank of India said, "there is no scope (for a lending rate cut now)." His views were shared by other bankers too who ruled out the possibility of rate cut in the immediate run. On customer services, the RBI
asked banks to stop differential treatment for home-branch and non-home branch customers, apart from asking banks to price retail loans at uniform rates. With falling gold prices making lenders uncomfortable, it asked
banks not to lend against gold coins above 50 grams. RBI expects non-food credit growth to pick up marginally to 15 percent in 2013-14 from 14 percent year-on-year and deposit mobilisation to be flat at 14 percent.
