    RBI policy review meet: Former RBI governor Raghuram Rajan, in his last monetary policy review meet before being replaced by Urjit Patel, kept the repo rate unchanged at 6.5% and the CRR at 4%. he blamed 'uncertainties' (especially inflation) for not slashing the rates as demanded by Indian corporates and hinted at by the top members of the Narendra Modi Cabinet. The common citizen, with big EMIs to pay and homes to buy, was disappointed too that the RBI Guv did not lessen their loan payments load or make it easier to purchase anything from flats to cars.

    Some of the factors that held the RBI Governor's hands when it came to cutting rates were first of all economic growth, which was robust enough at 7.9% and then 7.1 % in April for the last quarter of FY16.

    Brexit was a lot on the RBI's mind. Britain was creating all kinds of problems for the world markets.
