Fitch wants to see how MPC will tackle monetary policy

A day before the Reserve Bank of India announces 2016-17's fourth monetary bi-monthly policy, rating agency Fitch said it is waiting to see how the newly-formed Monetary Policy Committee tackles it, hinting that a low inflation targeting could positively impact the country's rating.

"The inflation targeting framework now in place, should reduce the impact of pressures, but it will be interesting to see how this will play out in the Monetary Policy Committee (MPC), in which members appointed by both the government and RBI, will have a vote on monetary policy," Thomas Rookmaaker, Director, Asia-Pacific Sovereigns Group, Fitch Ratings, told IANS.

"Structurally low inflation would positively impact the sovereign rating profile as it would improve the investment climate and, hence, contribute to sustainable growth," he added.
