Rbi policy: What will be the impact of a further rise in the repo rate on your loan issuance?


You should evaluate the personal loan interest rates offered by several NBFCs and banks before applying for a personal loan from a certain bank. However, while choosing to get a personal loan or a home loan, many people approach the bank where they have their main account. When you compare the interest rates of different banks, you may find that another bank gives personal loans and home loans at a much lower rate.

The Reserve Bank of India (RBI) raised the repo rate by 40 basis points to 4.40% on May 4 from 4% previously. A basis point is one hundredth of a percentage point. The repo rate was reduced in May 2020 and remained stable until the recent hike. In addition, the cash reserve ratio (CRR) was raised by 50 basis points, which put additional upward pressure on interest rates. As the increase took effect immediately, borrowers could expect higher EMIs, while FD investors should expect higher returns on new FDs.

Meanwhile, according to a Mint analyst poll, the RBI could raise the repo rate by 50 basis points and improve the cash reserve ratio (CRR) at its meeting this week to control inflation. . The central bank’s Monetary Policy Committee (MPC) will meet June 6-8.

According to five out of 10 economists polled by Mint, MPC is expected to raise the repo rate from 4.4% to 4.9%, with the rest expecting a 35-40 basis point hike to 4.75-4.8 %. Half of those surveyed expect a 25 to 50 basis point increase in CRR, the percentage of deposits that banks must hold in reserve with the RBI.

Moreover, with retail inflation reaching 7.79% in April, the government announced several measures to contain the prices of essential goods, banning or restricting exports of wheat, sugar and iron ore. Consequently, the majority of economists expect the monetary policy committee to revise its inflation forecast upwards.

The EMI for fixed rate loans, such as car and personal loans, remains the same for the entire term of the loan. Therefore, the timing of your loan application is crucial. When you take out a low-interest loan, you can keep that rate for the life of the loan, even if the general interest rate goes up.

In contrast, for mortgage borrowers, the timing of taking out the loan is less critical as they typically borrow at variable rates. Rising rates may not have a substantial impact on interest payments and EMI payments. As a result, even if you enter at a cheaper rate now, you will have to pay a higher rate later if the lender raises their interest rates.

You don’t have to worry about the repo rate if you have an existing fixed rate loan. However, if you have floating rates on an existing loan or are planning to take out a loan – fixed or variable rate, you may have to pay a higher rate if the RBI raises the repo rate further.
