Industrialist Anand Mahindra praised the Reserve Bank of India (RBI) for today's policy rate cut. "Excellent. I had just tweeted about the need to roll up our sleeves & get the GDP growth engine moving faster. Clearly, the RBI is leading from the front..." Mr Mahindra tweeted on Wednesday, after the RBI's Monetary Policy Committee (MPC) delivered its fourth rate cut of the current year. The central bank reduced the repo rate - the key interest rate at which it lends short-term funds to commercial banks - by 35 basis points to 5.40 per cent - the lowest level recorded in over nine years.
