Rajnish Kumar, Chairman, SBI said, "The RBI policy decision to change the policy stance to “ accommodative” will simultaneously help the financial system to navigate to a lower term structure of interest rates and also accommodate growth concerns. On the regulatory front, the decision to lower the Basel III Leverage Ratio will augment the lendable resources of the Banks. Also the move to scrap transaction charges for RTGS & NEFT will boost digital transactions. The decision to issue draft for 'on-tap' licensing of small finance banks will add depth to this sector.
