Governor of RBI Shaktikanta Das has taken collective measures to boost the financial economy. Check out his announcements here

RBI Governor announced Rs. 50,000 crore LTRO.

After India entered into the second phase of a nationwide lockdown on Tuesday to fight against coronavirus, Reserve Bank of India (RBI) Governor Shaktikanta Das today announced new measures to boost liquidity, expand bank credit flow and ease financial stress. 

The Reserve Bank of India (RBI) on Friday freed up more capital for banks to lend, announced a new Rs 50,000 crore targeted long-term repo operation (LTRO 2.0) to address the liquidity stress of shadow banks and microfinance institutions and hinted at the possibility of further rate cuts going forward.

After cutting the benchmark lending rate by 75 bps three weeks ago, the RBI today slashed the reverse repo rate to 25 basis points to 3.75%. The central bank has also asked all banks to not make any dividend payments to shareholders keeping in mind the financial challenges during the COVID-19 pandemic.

The central bank didn’t tinker with the repo rate. Still, the governor said the inflation flight is likely to fall below its target within a month or two, which will create more policy space for it to address better the challenges posed by the COVID-19 outbreak and the lockdown to check its spread. “The space needs to be used effectively and in time,” he said.
