On an expected line, RBI in FY23's first bi-monthly monetary policy, decided to keep the repo rate unchanged at 4% while maintaining an accommodative stance, however, it restored the liquidity corridor position to the pre-pandemic level. Due to geopolitical tension that led to mounting commodity prices along with boiling oil prices, RBI now expects a slowdown in economic growth while inflation is seen to rise further. The current policy approach is hawkish and is understandable due to inflationary pressures globally.

On inflation, RBI expects the consumer price index at 5.7% in 2022-23, with Q1 at 6.3%; Q2 at 5.8%; Q3 at 5.4%; and Q4 at 5.1%. While the real GDP growth for 2022-23 is now projected at 7.2%, with Q1 at 16.2%; Q2 at 6.2%; Q3 at 4.1%; and Q4 at 4%, with risks broadly balanced.
