Bankers with RBI Governor D Subbarao for the RBI credit policy meeting in Mumbai
ASHUTOSH DATAR, ECONOMIST, IIFL, MUMBAI:
"No real surprise on the central bank's thoughts on inflation. So we can now expect rates to be increased by at least another 50 bps by end-2011.
JAY SHANKAR, CHIEF ECONOMIST - DIRECTOR, RELIGARE CAPITAL MARKETS, MUMBAI:
"We believe that the markets will take this faster tightening positively. However, inflation is likely to peak only at around 12% around Sept-Oct. The impact of higher oil prices still have to be factored in the headline numbers. This is a serious downside risk to our FY12 growth estimates.
"Current elevated rates of inflation pose significant risks to future growth," RBI Governor said.
