The Reserve Bank of India (RBI) Governor Shaktikanta Das-headed monetary policy committee (MPC) on Thursday maintained status quo on policy rates in its fifth bi-monthly monetary policy review of the financial year. This halt came after five consecutive cuts. The short-term lending rate, or repo rate, was unchanged at 5.15 per cent. All six committee members voted against the rate cut.
