RBI cuts interest rate by 25 basis points to 6.25%. Home loans should get cheaper.


The Reserve Bank of India’s monetary policy committee on 7th February 2019 reduced the policy interest rate by 25 basis points to 6.25%. The six-member monetary policy committee voted 4:2 in favour of the rate cut. This decision could lead to banks reducing lending rates for consumer and home loans.
