Press Release (ePRNews.com) - indore, india - Feb 15, 2016 - RBI : The Reserve Bank of India is expected to cut down key interest rates by 25 bps at its policy review meet on April 5th, a Bank of America Merrill Lynch (BofA-ML) report says. In accordance with the global financial services major, the implementation of the 7th Pay Commission recommendations should support consumption requirement in the country but would limit planned expenditure. Click for Share tips In response, we estimate the RBI to cut rates by 25 bps on April 5th as the fiscal deficit is already low compared to history, RBI’s Mr. RaghuramRajan on Feb 2 left key interest rate unchanged citing inflation risks and growth concerns, while pegging further easing of monetary policy on proposals of government’s budget. Mr. Rajan told RBI “continues to be accommodative” but would look forward to the govt’s budget proposals on Feb 29 as also the inflation trend. BofA-ML estimates Budget 2016-17 to TGT(target) a fiscal deficit of 3.8 per-cent of GDP, a tad lower than financial year 2015-16’s 3.9 per-cent, but higher than the pre-committed 3.5 per-cent.
Economy of Japan contracted an annualised 1.4 per-cent in the final quarter of previous year as consumer spending slumped, contributing to headaches for policymakers already wary of damage the financial market rout could inflict on breakable recovery. The data underscores the challenges premier Shinzo Abe faces in dragging the economy out of stagnation. The contraction in gross domestic product (GDP) was bigger than a median market forecast for a 1.2 per-cent decline and followed a revised 1.3 per-cent increase in the previous quarter, Cabinet Office data showed on today. It matched a fall marked in April-June previous year. Private consumption, which makes up 60 percent of GDP, fell 0.8 percent, more than a median market forecast for a 0.6 per-cent decline, a sign Abe’s stimulus policies have so far failed to nudge households into boosting spending. In a glimmer of hope for policymakers, moreover, capital expenditure went high 1.4 per-cent, confounding market estimations for a 0.2 per-cent decrease. While local requirement shaved 0.5 percentage point off GDP growth, external requirement, or net exports, contributed 0.1 point due to a decline in the value of imports caused by falling oil prices.
