Highlights of Monetary Policy issued by RBI For FY 20-21

The newly appointed Monetary Policy Committee (MPC) with Dr. Ashima Goyal, Professor Jayanth R. Varma, and Dr. Shashanka Bhide as external members met on 7th, 8th, and 9th October 2020 in its first meeting and the 25th under the monetary policy framework that was instituted in June 2016. COVID-19 has tested and severely stretched our resources and our endurance. Our travails are not over yet and a renewed rise in infections remains a serious risk. We have, however, come far on an un-traveled road, with self-belief and the courage of hope. We will reach deep into our fortitude and inner strength to overcome whatever formidable challenges COVID-19 may unleash going forward. If we have the resolve to be steadfast until we emerge victoriously, I am confident we will muster the forces needed to subdue the pandemic.
