Interest Rate Policy

(a) Ceiling on Interest Rates on NRE Deposits

71. With a view to aligning interest rates on Non-Resident (External) Rupee (NRE) deposits with international interest rates, ceiling on NRE deposit rates linked to the US dollar LIBOR/SWAP rates of corresponding maturities was introduced effective July 17, 2003. The ceiling interest rates on NRE deposits have since been revised from time to time. On a review, it is proposed:

    • To raise the ceiling on NRE interest rates to LIBOR/SWAP rates of US dollar of corresponding maturities plus 50 basis points from the existing level of US dollar LIBOR/SWAP rates.
