The Reserve Bank of India (RBI) announced its decision on key rates following the conclusion of its three-day Monetary Policy Committee (MPC) meeting.  The meeting was headed by Mr. Shaktikanta Das, the Governor of the RBI, following which he addressed a press conference on Thursday, the 8th of June.

In the previous MPC meeting held in April, the RBI decided to pause its rate hike cycle and maintain the repo rate at 6.5%.   This time also, considering the inflation and other economic aspects, the MPC decided to keep the repo rate unchanged.
