The most notable event of the past week was the decision made by the Reserve Bank of India's Monetary Policy Committee (MPC). While this event was anticipated to unfold without major surprises, it managed to introduce some unexpected fluctuations in the financial markets. As anticipated, the Repo rates were changed at 6.5%. However, there were additional developments that caught the market off guard, such as the implementation of Incremental Cash Reserve Ratio (CRR) and upward revisions in inflation projections. These surprises had a slightly adverse impact, particularly affecting banks in a negative manner subsequent to the announcement.
In addition to the MPC decision, the markets remained attentive to the release of ongoing quarterly financial results. Ultimately, the Nifty 50 index concluded the week with a decline of 0.45%.
