Transmission of rate cuts to improve further; credit growth momentum gathering pace: RBI chief

TIL Desk/Business/New Delhi/ Reserve Bank Governor Shaktikanta Das on Saturday said momentum is gathering pace on credit growth and expressed hope that transmission of rate cuts will improve further in the coming days.

His comments come against the backdrop of concerns over growth of the economy, which has also registered spike in inflation and slowdown in industrial production.

Addressing the media after RBI board meeting, which was also addressed by Finance Minister Nirmala Sitharaman, Das said he does not agree that rate cut transmission is plateauing out.

Transmission of rate cuts is slowly and steadily improving and it is expected to improve further, he said.  “We do expect credit growth to pick up in coming months,” Das said, adding that momentum is gathering pace on this front.
