Consequently, the reverse repo rate under the LAF (liquidity adjustment facility) remains at 6 per cent, and the marginal standing facility (MSF) rate and the Bank Rate at 6.25 per cent.

"MPC has maintained all policy rates unchanged".

It had last reduced the benchmark lending rate 6-year-low to 6 percent (0.25 percent low) last August.

RBI Deputy Governor BP Kanungo while addressing a press conference after the first MPC meeting of the fiscal year 2018-19 said, "We are mandating that all payment system operators will be required to keep their data in the country".

The meeting of the six-member monetary policy committee is taking place at a time when the government has stressed that the fiscal deficit and revenue deficit for 2017-18 will be less than the revised estimate of the general budget.

The central bank also cautioned against rising trade protectionism and financial market volatility that could derail the ongoing global recovery, despite growth and trade strengthening around the world.

Patel noted that inflation print for February was lower than the expected but the is MPC always looks ahead.

Crude oil prices are hovering around United States dollars 70 per barrel putting pressure on the government to cut duty on this. "Accordingly, the MPC will again vote for status quo with a preference to wait for more clarity on key risks". The CPI in February came at 4.4 per cent, below the RBI's projection of 5.1 per cent for the fourth quarter of 2017-18, but a shade higher than the medium-term target of 4 per cent.
