    Marketmen said investors were expecting RBI to lower it from 6 per cent to infuse liquidity in the market.

    “Growth is clearly decelerating. This reflects the combined impact of several factors — the uncertain global environment, the cumulative impact of past monetary policy tightening and domestic policy uncertainties,” the RBI said in monetary policy review.

    After raising lending rates 13 times since March 2010 to tame inflation, RBI finally put a pause on the hike which was a market positive, they added.
