Rate hike on the anvil: survey

New Delhi - Over 40 per cent of Indian companies surveyed by industry chamber CII are expecting the Reserve Bank to hike interest rates further in the current fiscal.

The survey, conducted during July-September 2018, covered nearly 200 firms of varying sizes, the CII said while releasing its 104th edition of quarterly Business Confidence Index (BCI).

The BCI also shows that companies are more than just optimistic “about the return of good times” during the second quarter of the current fiscal, an indication of rising confidence about the future growth trajectory and business prospects.

After the 50 basis points interest rate hike by the RBI in the previous two monetary policy review meetings, the sentiment about further monetary policy action seems to have changed, the industry chamber said.

“In the current survey, about 42 per cent of the respondents felt that the RBI will engage in further interest rates hikes in 2018-19 as compared to the previous survey where a majority of the respondents anticipated a cut or no change in policy rates in 2018-19," it said.

RBI Governor Urjit Patel-headed Monetary Policy Committee will start deliberation on the fourth bi-monthly monetary policy for 2018-19 on October 3 and announce its decision on October 5.

As per the industry body, BCI has touched the series high of 64.9 as against 60.1 in the last quarter.

“The significant uptick in the index, for the fourth consecutive quarter, is an indicator that business sentiment is upbeat," it added.
