Post budget, repo rate was cut further by 25 basis points. The first rate cut though had a good impact on banks, a borrower has no benefits from it. Only 47 commercial banks reduced their loan interest rate as they wanted to see better profit margins. But the second rate cut is expected to effect on borrower also. This rate cut has been estimated to have its effect on EMIs also.

The second rate cut was done due to some major reasons. They include RBI’s confidence over Modi’s governance and the confidence towards the budget’s impact.
