Repo Rate reached 5.75 per cent as RBI slashes rate for the third time

The Reserve Bank of India (RBI) has cut the repo rate by 25 basis points to 5.75 per cent from 6 per cent. This could make the bank loans cheaper for the people


On June 6, Thursday, the Reserve Bank of India (RBI) brought down its key lending rate for commercial banks by 0.25 per cent which means now the home loans along with other loans will become cheaper. In what can be called a relief for the middle class, the RBI brought down the repo rate to 5.75 per cent from 6 per cent.  

Repo rate is the interest rate at which commercial banks borrow short-term funds from the RBI.

The policy decision was announced by RBI's Monetary Policy Committee (MPC), led by governor Shaktikanta Das, amid slowing economic growth and global uncertainty. The decision comes after a three-day meeting of the MPC and has resulted in a third repo rate cut by RBI in the last six months.
