RBI keeps repo rate unchanged and raises reverse repo rate

During RBI’s First Bimonthly policy review, Reserve Bank of India keeps repo rate unchanged at 6.25 % and raises the reverse repo rate by 25 bps from 5.75% to 6%.

This move will help in narrow the liquidity adjustment facility (LAF). LAF is a tool which allows banks to borrow money through repurchase agreements. LAF which helps banks adjusting the day to day mismatches in liquidity

The excess Liquidity arose due to Government’s demonetization policy.
