Announcing the decision of the MPC after its three-day deliberations, RBI governor Shaktikanta Das said on Thursday that the committee unanimously decided to keep the repo rate at 6.5%.
Mr Das said taking into account the economic factors, the MPC has predicted GDP growth at 6.5% in FY24.
As regards the inflation rate, the MPC forecast was 5.4% for 2023-24, taking into account the various domestic and global factors.
Mr Das also said uncertainty exists due to geopolitical situation, monsoon and others.
