Rate cut could refuel economic growth

Last week, the Reserve Bank of India’s monetary policy committee (MPC) slashed policy rates, for the fifth time in a row, by 25 basis points to 5.15%. MPC also decided to continue with an accommodative stance as long as it is necessary to revive growth while ensuring that inflation remains within the target. 

India Inc is confident that the move will revive investment and encourage consumption. CII Director General Chandrajit Banerjee said that the cumulative 135 bps rate cuts this year along with a slew of measures announced by the government to provide growth stimulus to a variety of sectors is expected to lift growth from its current stupor and unleash animal spirits. 

Surendra Hiranandani, CMD of House of Hiranandani as well as Anarock Chairman, Anuj Puri said that the move will incentivise investment and boost consumption.  

A senior officer associated with CREDAI said that rate reduction coupled with the upcoming festive season and reduction in corporate tax will provide a fillip to the housing demand. JLL India CEO & Country Head Ramesh Nair said that the real estate sector is likely to witness accelerated sales owing to favourable policy reforms and the gradual transmission of rate cuts to end-consumers through lowering of mortgage rates.

Realty Tracker and The Great Indian Middle Class smallcase are expected to benefit due to rate cut.

The Realty Tracker smallcase comprises real estate companies to allow investors to efficiently track and invest in the realty sector.

The Great Indian Middle Class includes companies that are expected to benefit from the boost in consumption resulting from growth in the Indian middle class.
