    Policy can be more balanced in coming months

    RBI to wait for 'time correction' in rupee trajectory

    RBI's 'on-hold' policy coming to an end

    The central bank’s strong anti-inflation rhetoric since June has dampened the earlier market expectation of rate cuts in September and to an extent over the remaining months of 2012-13 as well. I, however, remain biased in thinking RBI will ...

    July policy a close call rate cuts to follow

    Rate cut expectations in July have softened recently, with strong anti-inflationary rhetoric from the Reserve Bank of India (RBI). It will, however, be difficult for RBI to deny further monetary easing for long, in my opinion, given aggravating ...

    'Rhetoric spells RBI's discomfort in pausing now'
