New Delhi: The Reserve Bank's monetary policy Committee on Thursday announced interest rates. The repo rate has been cut by 0.25%. It has come down from 6% to 5.75%. The reduction in the repo rate will be cheaper than all kinds of loans. However, it is up to the banks to decide how long and how much they give to the customers when they benefit from the repo rate reduction. The repo rate is the rate at which RBI lends loans to commercial banks.
