    Liquidity in India's banking system is in "comfort zone" as of now, a deputy governor of the RBI said on Monday, citing a recent drop in banks' daily borrowings from the Reserve Bank of India and steady overnight cash rate.

    Subir Gokarn also said the RBI has the option of buying bonds through open market operations if stress emerged on liquidity.

    Government bond yields nudged up slightly after his comments, as expectations for a reduction in the cash reserve ratio waned.

    Gokarn was speaking to reporters on the sidelines of an investor event.

    Gold futures in India fell on Monday, after coming close to a record high in the last session, due to a firm rupee and a drop in global prices, although physical traders waited for more price falls before booking deals.

    The most-active gold for August delivery on the Multi Commodity Exchange (MCX) was 0.46% lower at Rs 29,962 per 10 grams. It touched a high of Rs 30,156 in previous session, coming close to the record of Rs 30,200 hit in early December last year, according to Reuters data.

    The rupee, which rose to its highest level in a week, plays an important role in determining the landed cost of the dollar-quoted yellow metal.
