By way of an incentive, banks would be permitted to park their surplus liquidity up to the size of the loan book created under this scheme with the Reserve Bank under the reverse repo window at a rate which is 25 bps lower than the repo rate or, termed in a different way, 40 bps higher than the reverse repo rate, he added.

The RBI's monetary policy committee left the repo rate unchanged at 4 percent and said would continue with the accommodative stance as long as was necessary to revive and sustain growth on a durable basis and continue to mitigate the impact of COVID-19 on the economy.

The reverse repo rate under the LAF also remained unchanged at 3.35 percent, and the marginal standing facility (MSF) rate and the bank rate at 4.25 percent.

The central bank, however, lowered its economic growth forecast for 2021-2022 to 9.5 percent from 10.5 percent, citing the second coronavirus wave.
