Domestic stocks logged modest gains in steady session of trade after the central bank maintained its neutral stance while raising repo rate by 0.25%.

All the six members of RBI's monetary policy meeting have voted in favour of a rate hike, while maintaining a neutral stance today, 6 June 2018. On the basis of an assessment of the current and evolving macroeconomic situation at its meeting, the Monetary Policy Committee (MPC) decided to increase the policy repo rate under the liquidity adjustment facility (LAF) by 25 basis points to 6.25%.

Consequently, the reverse repo rate under the LAF stands adjusted to 6%, and the marginal standing facility (MSF) rate and the Bank Rate to 6.50%. The decision of the MPC is consistent with the neutral stance of monetary policy in consonance with the objective of achieving the medium-term target for consumer price index (CPI) inflation of 4% within a band of +/- 2%, while supporting growth.
