Repo rate reduction can be helpful in rapid growth. The repo rate is expected to decline cheaper loans is increased. Repo rate after declining loan rates by banks will be reduced to some extent. Although the reduction in the repo rate will be equal to the reduction. However, each time the benefit, it is not necessary.

"Despite the monsoon deficiency and its uneven spatial and temporal distribution, food inflation pressures have been contained by resolute actions by the government to manage supply," the RBI said in its policy statement.
