Reserve Bank of India (RBI) Governor Shaktikanta Das on December 8 announced that the variable rate reverse repo (VRRR) auction amount will be progressively enhanced to Rs 7.5 lakh crore by December 31.

The central bank would continue to rebalance liquidity conditions in a non-disruptive manner, Das said, as he shared the outcome of the monetary policy committee (MPC) meeting.

The MPC left key rates unchanged for the ninth consecutive time while maintaining an “accommodative” stance. The repo rate, the key lending rate, stays at 4 percent, the reverse repo rate at 3.35 percent.

"It is now proposed to enhance the 14-day VRRR auction amounts on a fortnightly basis in the following manner: Rs 6.5 lakh crore on December 17; and further to Rs 7.5 lakh crore on December 31. Consequently, from

January 2022 onwards, liquidity absorption will be undertaken mainly through the auction route,” Das said.
