RBI monetary policy: Hikes repo rate to 8%, adjusts reverse repo rate at 7%, holds CRR at 4%

7787_raghuram_rajan_3

Governor of the Reserve Bank of India (RBI) in his stern measure to tackle inflation has hiked repo rate yet again by 25 basis points (bps) to 8%. RBI has kept cash reserve ratio (CRR) unchanged at 4%, however, in its monetary policy review on Tuesday. The change has been extended to reverse repo rate, which stands adjusted at 7%, while the marginal standing facility (MSF) has been increased as well along with the Bank Rate at 9%.
Governor Raghuram Rajan was widely expected to hold interest rates. The rates were unchanged even in the last fiscal policy review held on 18 December. In the second quarter review on 29 October, repo rate was hiked and marginal standing facility (MSF) was cut by 25 bps each. It is evident that the move to hike repo rate is an after effect of the lately released Report of the Expert Committee to Revise and Strengthen the Monetary Policy Framework by Deputy Governor RBI, Urjit Patel. The report had recommended anchoring CPI inflation to review RBI monetary policy.

Karnataka became the first State in India to provide Universal Health Coverage to its population. It achieved the distinction with the launch of Rajiv Arogya Yojana on 9 January 2014.
The Scheme entails the beneficiary to pay only 10 percent of the cost of treatment or procedures. It aims at providing subsidized healthcare to virtually every citizen in the State with Above Poverty Line (APL) card. The BPL families are already covered under health scheme through Vajpayee Arogya Sree programme.
Under the scheme, APL family members are entitled for health check up to 1.5 lakh rupees per annum. In special cases, if the expenditure exceeds 1.5 lakh rupees, the government grants another 50000 rupees. The scheme covers 447 procedures and 50 follow-up packages.

Reserve Bank of India relaxed Foreign Direct Investment rules



The Reserve Bank of India relaxed the rules of Foreign Direct Investment on 9 January 2014. The decision is aimed at providing exit option to the foreign investors. The investors can exit their investments by selling their holding of equity or debt.
The relaxation was expected to facilitate higher foreign direct investment (FDI) inflows into India. India saw a drop of 15 percent in FDI inflows from April 2013 to October 2013.
The exit option given to the foreign investors is subject to the condition that any FDI will have a minimum lock-in period without any assured return. The lock-in period for defence and construction sector has been kept at three years and for all other sectors it will be at least a year.
For a listed company the non-resident investor can exit at the market price prevailing at the stock exchanges. In case of unlisted company an investor can exit from equity shares at a price not exceeding the price arrived at on the basis of return on equity.
