MUMBAI: RBI Governor Urjit Patel had opted for a moderate rate cut of 25 basis points arguing that low food prices were unusual and vulnerable to upward pressures, said minutes of the last Monetary Policy Committee (MPC) meet released today.Patel had also opined that effective transmission of policy rate was key to non-inflationary growth and banks have still space to cut lending rates.The RBI Governor-headed six-member MPC had met on August 1 and 2 to decide this fiscal's third bimonthly monetary policy.Based on the majority view at the MPC meet, the central bank reduced the key policy rate (repo) by 25 basis points to 6 per cent, although the industry and other stakeholders were expecting more than that.Four of the six members had recommended 0.25 per cent cut in repo rate . While external member Ravindra H Dholakia (Professor, IIM, Ahmedabad) suggested 0.5 per cent reduction, another member Michael Debabrata Patra (RBI Executive Director) was in favour of status quo.As per the minutes, Patel cautioned that "the present low level of food prices is unusual and is vulnerable to upward pressures".He said an assessment of whether the recent deflation in food items is sustainable, despite a normal monsoon, would require more hard data going forward.The RBI governor further said that effective transmission of a policy rate cut is the key to achieving the goal of supporting non-inflationary growth.
