MPC Press Release - Sept. 2014
Wednesday, 17 September 2014 00:00

In assessing the inflation outlook, the Committee observed that inflation is expected to peak in the near term. The latest forecast showed that inflation is likely to stay slightly above the upper band of the revised target of 13±2 percent by end 2014. However, inflation is expected to move within the band in the second half of 2015 barring any adverse shocks. Given these considerations, the Committee decided to keep the monetary policy rate unchanged at 19 percent.

The Committee held the view that the upside risks to inflation, though elevated, are mainly structural and therefore may not need to be addressed by a policy rate adjustment at this time. On the other hand there are no significant risks to growth. Consequently, the Committee decided to maintain the policy rate at 16.0 percent. The Committee will continue to monitor developments and take appropriate action if required.
