High interest rates keep realty sales growth under pressure as purchases of both residential and commercial property are largely driven by finance.

At its mid-quarterly monetary policy review meet on Friday, 16 December 2011, the Reserve (RBI) left its main lending rate unchanged. The central bank also refrained from cutting the cash reserve ratio (CRR) despite tight liquidity in the system. The repo rate was left steady at 8.5% after increasing it 13 times since March 2010. The bank rate also remains static at 6%. The central bank kept its end-March 2012 inflation forecast unchanged at 7%.
