India Bond Impact ( Fixed Income Report) : RBI sticks to CRR, likely no cuts in CRR, SLR

India GateRBI stuck to its plan for India’s monetary policy not bowing to FI market commentators and probably internal pulls as it refused to consider reserve requirements cuts like China in the period it waits out a bottoming of inflation expectations before considering interest rate cuts

The CRR is 6% currently except for CBLO, ACU (overseas USD holdings) , Offshore banking units NDTL and inter Bank liabilities where a 3% CRR is avered. The MSF lends to banks already including their SLR liabilities as allowed collateral at the upper limit of the rate corridor set by RBI, at 9-9.5%

RBI has already conducted OMOs to stabilise liquidity int he market and may be on the watch for unwanted liquidity influx from new QE in US/Europe and UK in that order

Market pressure on yields pushed them below 8.4% as the Electronic trading platforms traded thrice the daily average in the new year at INR 278 bln daily or INR27,800 cr daily, still avery low amount compared to inter bank trading volumes

Moody’s rating upgrade to P-3 allows india some leeway in apportioning its Reserves again as short term liabilities for Corporates keep increasing
