EXPERT'S VIEW ON RBI POLICY Jayant Manglik, President, Religare Broking The RBI hiked interest rates by 25bps along expected lines citing various risks to the inflation outlook, as it maintained the monetary policy stance at neutral. While acknowledging the recent cool-off in crude oil prices and the reduction in GST rates, which may have a disinflationary impact on inflation, the policy repo rate has been hiked in the backdrop of the uncertainty and volatility surrounding various inflation-impacting factors. These include global crude oil prices, global financial market volatility, input cost inflation, progress and distribution of monsoon, economy’s fiscal condition, the recently announced MSP hike and global trade protectionism, among others. However, by maintaining the monetary policy stance at neutral, we believe the RBI has retained some amount of flexibility as far as the rate decisions in the foreseeable future are concerned, which could be highly data dependent

7 key risks to inflation, according to RBI 1) Crude oil prices continue to be volatile and vulnerable to both upside and downside risks 2) Volatility in global financial markets continues to impart uncertainty to the inflation outlook 3) Households’ inflation expectations, as measured by the Reserve Bank’s survey, have risen significantly in the last two rounds, which could influence actual inflation outcomes in the months to come 4) Manufacturing firms polled in the Reserve Bank’s industrial outlook survey have reported hardening of input price pressures in Q2 of 2018-19 5) Though the monsoon has been normal temporally so far, its regional distribution needs to be carefully monitored in the context of key CPI components such as paddy 6) In case there is fiscal slippage at the centre and/or state levels, it could have adverse implications for market volatility, crowd out private investment and impact the outlook for inflation 7) The staggered impact of HRA revision by state governments may push headline inflation up
