Reserve Bank of India (RBI) Governor Shaktikanta Das today cut interest rates by 75 basis points to 4.4%. He also announced several measures to inject ₹3.74 lakh crore liquidity into the system.

The RBI said it was maintaining its “accommodative” stance, and would maintain its position “as long as necessary” to revive growth, while ensuring inflation remained within target.Your money is safe,” RBI governor assured the depositors. He further said that “The Indian banking system is safe and sound. In the recent past, COVID-19 related volatility in the stock market has impacted share prices of banks as well, resulting in some panic withdrawal of deposits from a few private sector banks.

It would be fallacious to link share prices to safety of deposits. As I have mentioned in my earlier interaction with the media, depositors of commercial banks including private sector banks need not worry on the safety of their funds. I would, therefore, urge members of public as well as the public authorities, who have deposits in private sector banks, not to resort to any panic withdrawal of their funds.
