The SBI FD interest rate revision comes ahead of RBI’s bi-monthly monetary policy announcement. The monetary policy committee commences its three-day meeting on today and will announce its resolution on 1 August.
After the last review in June, when the RBI hiked rates by 0.25%, and data releases showing hardening in inflation, many analysts had voted for a rate hike. But the divide on the call seems to be coming out now as the review date nears. Last week, economists at country’s largest lender SBI had also said that the RBI may go for a status quo this time.
