The monetary policy measures on the cards includes an aggressive 100-150 basis points cut in the cash reserve ratio, repo rate and the reverse repo rate. As part of the first stimulus package announced on December 6, the RBI had cut the repo rate and the reverse repo rate by 100 bps each. The reverse repo rate now stands at 5% and the repo rate at 6.5%. The cut in reverse repo rate was expected to force banks to go out and lend. But with ten-year government bond yields dipping to as low as 5.6% in recent days, the reverse repo has again become banks optimum.
