Decoding RBI’s repo rate cut

Yesterday, the RBI’s Monetary Policy Committee decided to cut its key policy rate, that is, it’s repo rate, by 25 basis points, taking it from 6.5 per cent to 6.25 per cent. The decision has come as a surprise to a lot of people, as it was widely expected that the committee would not tinker with the repo rate. In this episode, P Vaidyanathan Iyer joins us to explain what does it say about the current economy and the new governor, whether this move has been made keeping the elections in mind and the kind of impact this decision will have on the economy.
