Indian central bank raises rates for second time

Indian central bank raises rates for second time

This will affect EMIs of housing and automobile loans for consumers.

It's because banks use the figure as a reference for the amount they either pay or charge.

In June, the MPC also increased the key rate by 25 bps.

What does the interest rate rise mean for me?

Investec economist George Brown said he is "fairly confident" the Bank will move to raise rates and is pencilling in an 8-1 vote in favour, with Sir Jon Cunliffe the only dissenter. It is the second hike in two months and the second under Modi government. Bank staff believe this weakness was temporary and expect the economy to expand by 0.4% in the second quarter.

Britain's central bank is expected to raise rates from 0.5% to 0.75%, taking the UK's base rate of interest to its highest level since March 2009. "These numbers clearly indicate that the markets are now recovering from the shocks of structural changes and policy reforms".

Cheaper mortgage deals in recent years have also encouraged people to lock in promotional rates. With the increase in lending rate, HDFC will see a positive impact on margins in the coming quarters.

"If we voted leave this is not our problem, this is the EU's problem, they need to work out what is going to happen with the single market".

The Institute of Directors said the Bank had "jumped the gun" by raising the rate now.

The Bank of England raised its benchmark interest rate to the highest level since 2009 in what may be its final blow against inflation before the United Kingdom leaves the European Union. This is slightly lower than the 2.5% rate expected by the Bank in its forecast three months ago.

Many experts, especially economists at the U.S. banks, have had to face the ignominy of having their RBI calls going wrong, twice.

The BoE nevertheless said the economy was now operating at nearly its "speed limit", or full capacity, raising the prospect of more home-grown inflation pressure ahead.

Of course, these are not normal times.

Saver or borrower? Interest rates have risen.

The minutes explained that Brexit is still one of the most important considerations for the bank's rate-setting committee.

'We will be reviewing other variable rate mortgages, including our standard variable rate, following this decision, and we will communicate to those customers impacted, with notice given in line with their mortgage terms and conditions'.
