In the Reserve Bank of India’s conclusion meeting of Monetary Policy, the RBI governor Shaktikanta Das announced an increase in the repo rate by 50 basis points. This increase is happening for the second time in five weeks. With this, now the RBI has increased the repo rate to 4.90 per cent.


As the repo rate has increased, will it have a direct impact on people who have EMIs? Yes, as the repo rate hike will make EMIs costlier. The increase in repo rate has a direct impact on interest rates on house loans, car loans, and personal loans.

What impact does the increase in repo rate have on EMI holders?

When the RBI’s policy rate increases due to this there is a higher cost of funds for banks. And, because of this, banks also raise interest rates and that directly impacts the pocket of the EMI holder and the monthly instalment also gets costlier because of this.

The RBI has been increasing the repo rate to tackle inflationary pressure. RBI governor Das also said that India’s recovery has also gained momentum and the withdrawal of accommodation started during the pandemic.


He also said that inflation has steeply increased much beyond the tolerance level. The process of recovery in emerging market economies is also getting affected. But the Indian economy has remained resilient. Das further said that they have started a gradual withdrawal of the extraordinary accommodation. RBI will continue to be proactive and decisive in mitigating the fallout of the geopolitical crises on our economy. Their steps will be measured and calibrated.

Das said that the RBI will remain focused on bringing down inflation with the target. He also talked about the geopolitical situation and said that the ongoing war has turned out to be a dampener on global trade and growth. Domestic economic activity is gaining traction while inflation pressures have intensified faster. Inflationary pressures have become broad-based and remain largely driven by supply shocks.
