“The relevant instructions /circulars for all these measures will be issued separately,” Das said in his statement.
“NACH has emerged as a popular and prominent mode of direct benefit transfer (DBT) to large number of beneficiaries. This has helped transfer of government subsidies during the present COVID-19 in a timely and transparent manner,” the statement read.
Among other major announcements, Governor Das kept key policy rates unchanged with repo rate at 4 per cent while the reverse repo rate at 3.35 per cent. The MPC also maintained status quo on Marginal standing facility (MSF) and bank rates. MSF is a window for banks to borrow from the Central Bank in an emergency situation when inter-bank liquidity dries up completely.
The RBI has also maintained its accommodative stance till it was necessary, Das said.
The three-day MPC meeting held between 2-4 June was the 29th meeting of the monetary policy committee.
