  1. Rate cuts is the worst thing people would have wanted at this time. No institution in India can be trusted. Present rate cuts will only lead to consumption related loan rate cuts. Their will be no true investment in formation of capital assets. Housing is the only activity that will get boosted. Builders/financiers have modus operandi of hoarding housing supply and releasing it in such periods of high demand at inflated prices – housing supply is limited by availability of land and the supply curve is almost vertical, thus any increase in demand leads to automatic inflation of prices, and RBI is helping these unscrupulous builders/financiers. Loan rate cuts leading to increase housing demand is a clear signal for high inflation periods. Moreover what is the need for boosting growth anyways, government has been trying to boost growth for last five years with no success, now RBI has started this non-sense. People, at present times, don’t need any growth, they need basic necessities at affordable prices, which can be ensured only by keeping the inflation low and justly distributing the available economic goods. RBI is playing fraud upon the inspiration of people. RBI governor needs to be taken immediately into protective custody.
