Repo Rate will be cut in RBI Monetary Policy


भारतीय रिजर्व बैंक (आरबीआई) की मौद्रिक नीति समिति आज ब्याज दरों में कटौती को लेकर फैसला लेगी. मंगलवार से शुरू हुई  इस बैठक में रेपो रेट में कटौती की जा सकती है. अगर ऐसा होता है तो आम आदमी से लेकर कारोबारियों को सस्ते कर्ज का तोहफा मिलेगा.  लेकिन इस बार भी अगर आरबीआई रेपो रेट में कटौती नहीं करता है, तो आम आदमी को सस्ते कर्ज के लिए फरवरी तक इंतजार करना पड़ सकता है.

हालांकि फरवरी में भी आरबीआई की मौद्रिक नीति समिति अर्थव्यवस्था की चाल देखकर ही फैसला लेगी. आज आरबीआई के सामने रेपो रेट में कटौती करने के फैसले को लेकर कई चुनौतियां भी हैं.

कम हुआ है दबाव

मौद्रिक नीति समिति की बैठक ऐसे समय में हो रही है, जब जीडीपी के आंकड़ों में सुधार देखने को मिला है. इससे अर्थव्यवस्था की हालत में सुधार आया है. इस सुधार को देखते हुए आरबीआई पर ब्याज दरें कम करने का दबाव जरूर कम हुआ है. हालांकि जीडीपी आंकड़ों के अलावा बढ़ती महंगाई और कच्चे तेल की लगातार बढ़ रही कीमतों की चुनौती भी उसके सामने रहेगी.

बढ़ी है महंगाई

थोक महंगाई दर और खुदरा महंगाई दर में इजाफा हुआ है. नवंबर में जारी किए गए अक्टूबर की थोक महंगाई दर के आंकड़ों को देखें तो यह बढ़कर 3.56 फीसदी के स्‍तर पर आ गई है. अक्टूबर में खुदरा महंगाई  दर भी 3.58 फीसदी के स्‍तर पर पहुंच गई है. महंगाई  बढ़ने के लिए खाद्य उत्पादों की लगातार बढ़ रही कीमतें हैं. इस बैठक में आरबीआई के पास बढ़ती महंगाई एक बड़ी चुनौती रहेगी.

तेल की कीमतों में इजाफा

अंतरराष्ट्रीय स्तर पर कच्चे तेल की कीमतों में लगातार इजाफा हो रहा है. मौजूदा समय में कच्चा तेल 60 डॉलर प्रति बैरल पहुंच गया है. इससे देश में पेट्रोल और डीजल के दाम बढ़ने की आशंका पैदा हो गई है. इस वजह से ब्याज दरें घटाने और बढ़ाने को लेकर फैसला लेते वक्त आरबीआई की समिति इस पर भी विचार करेगी. समिति के फैसले को धार देने में यह फैक्टर भी अहम भूम‍िका निभाएगा.

पिछले कुछ महीनों के दौरान निजी क्षेत्र का निवेश घटा है. इस पर भी आरबीआई की मौद्रिक समिति विचार-विमर्श करेगी और इसके बाद ही कोई  फैसला लेगी.

जीडीपी का ये मिल सकता है फायदा

जीडीपी के आंकड़ों में सुधार आने का फायदा ग्रोथ प्रोजेक्शन में सुधार के तौर पर मिल सकता है. जीडीपी में आई तेजी को देखते हुए आरबीआई अर्थव्यवस्था के ग्रोथ अनुमान को बेहतर कर सकता है.

RBI Monetary Policy Today: What to note beyond rate action


The Reserve Bank of India’s monetary policy committee (MPC) is likely to leave rates unchanged on Wednesday, given the concerns of rising inflation. All 15 economists surveyed by Mint expect the central bank’s monetary policy committee (MPC) to keep the key repo rate—the rate at which it infuses liquidity in the banking system—unchanged at 6% when it announces its decision on Wednesday.

Beyond the rate action, here are the three things to watch out for in the policy:

Growth & inflation forecast

With growth recovering and inflation rising, RBI’s outlook for the rest of the financial year will be closely watched. In the last policy, RBI had revised the fiscal year 2017-18 growth target down to 6.7% from 7.3%, citing adverse shocks, especially to the manufacturing sector, from the implementation of the goods and services tax (GST). But the latest GDP growth number for the quarter ended September has inched upwards to 6.3% after five consecutive quarters of deceleration, showing signs of recovery. The market therefore growth to accelerate in the second half of the year.

Liquidity management

With gradual rise in currency in circulation and pick up in credit off-take, liquidity situation is moving towards neutral from surplus mode. Market expects RBI to reiterate its stance of bringing systemic liquidity closer to neutrality, while using overnight and term repos under the Liquidity Adjustment Facility to manage liquidity in the near term. Additional open market operations (OMO) also seem unlikely, given the cancellation of the OMO sale last month.

Government finances commentary

The RBI is likely to reiterate its caution regarding the impact of fiscal slippages on inflation in the coming month. Given that the government has already reached 96% of the budgeted fiscal deficit, any push towards large public spending would result in a breach of the 3.2% fiscal deficit budgeted for the current year. While the government has committed to stick to the fiscal deficit target, there is uncertainty regarding the October indirect tax collection number post GST implementation.

BSE, NSE Plan to expand Business Outside SEBI’s purview: Report

Major stock exchanges — Bombay Stock Exchange and National Stock Exchange — are mulling expansion into businesses outside the SEBI’s purview, a source-based report in the Hindu BusinessLine said.

The exchanges are seeking one-time approval for the same. The proposal has been sent to the SEBI committee, headed by former Reserve Bank of India Deputy Governor R Gandhi.

“They have sought SEBI’s permission to engage in activities or businesses that are unrelated to, or not identical to, those of an SE or of clearing corporations (CCs) or their core business, through a separate legal entity,” sources told the newspaper.

The approval could pave way for data analytics eco-system, artificial intelligence (AI) and data repository services.

BSE already has a tie-up with Sentifi, Switzerland’s algorithmic data analysis firm for social media updates related to 40,000 globally listed stocks. The exchange is also mulling selling insurance policies via a real-time digital platform.

In 2016, BSE had applied to SEBI for two insurance-related arms under its subsidiary, BSE Investments. It already has presence in mutual funds via the BSE Star MF.

The aim is to provide an information technology (IT) platform for the BSE members.

In October this year, BSE also tied-up with Nasdaq-listed Ebix Inc to develop an insurance distribution network in India. the new joint venture — BSE-Ebix — will deploy a distribution platform to allow distribution outlets, stock brokers, financial platform and wealth management advisors to sell life and non-life products.

Similarly, NSE too is a promoter of Computer Age Management Services (CAMS) and NSDL e-governance.

Gold Recoups Previous week’s Losses as Dollar Eases

Gold prices rose on Monday, erasing all of the previous week’s losses, as a weaker dollar and the resilience of a key chart level removed some downward pressure, while the return of Chinese buyers to the market also lent support.

Prices bounced after falling for a fourth week to a two-month low on Friday, following an upbeat reading of U.S. wage growth and unemployment that supported expectations for a U.S. interest rate hike in December, pushing the dollar and Treasury yields higher.

Gold’s resilience above its 200-day moving average at $1,253 an ounce also provided some technical support. Meanwhile, the dollar fell below a 10-week high, while geopolitical concerns centred on North Korea and Spain supported gold prices.

Spot gold was up 0.6 percent at $1,283.16 an ounce by 2:33 p.m. EDT (1833 GMT), while U.S. gold futures for December delivery settled up 0.8 percent at $1,285.
