Monetary Policy Framework

 

The new monetary policy regime will target the headline CPI inflation rate in a band of 4% (+/-2%) and the target will remain fixed for next five years. In case the RBI fails to achieve this target for three consecutive quarters, it would have to submit a report to the central government stating the reasons for failure to achieve the inflation target; remedial actions proposed to be taken by RBI; and an estimate of the time-period within which the inflation target shall be achieved pursuant to timely implementation of proposed remedial actions.

 

The Monetary Policy Committee will a six member body with three RBI members and three government appointed members. The RBI members would be the Governor (as Chairman of MPC), Deputy Governor in charge of monetary policy, and senior RBI official. The government nominated members of the MPC are chosen for four years without re-appointment. With the formation of the MPC, the decision on policy rate (repo rate) will be through voting. The casting vote (in case of a tie) will be with the RBI Governor. In the current regime, the RBI Governor decided on the policy after deliberations and consultations with both internal and external experts.
