RBI may increase rates in the second half of 2022
According to Moody’s, the setback to the Indian economy due to Corona resulted in a faster recovery than expected. The credit rating agency estimates that in the last quarter of last year, October-December 2021, GDP became 5 percent more than before Corona. Sales tax collections, retail collections and PMI (Purchasing Managers’ Index) are indicating a strong economy, but higher oil prices and supply constraints could weigh on growth. According to Moody’s, the RBI in its monitoring meeting this month decided to keep the rates stable, which was supportive. However, the credit rating agency believes that the repo rate may increase in the second half of this year, July-December 2022.
