RBI releasing its annual report in Mumbai yesterday said due to the evolving economic conditions, real GDP growth for 2018-19 is expected to increase to 7.4 per cent from 6.7 percent in the previous year.

The RBI said its monetary policy will continue to be guided by the objective of achieving the medium term target for retail inflation of four per cent. Agricultural production is likely to remain strong, growth in industry are strengthening and all other major sectors are reporting robust sales and improvement in profitability.

The prevailing negative credit-to-GDP gap indicates that there is sufficient scope for credit absorption and expansion in bank lending on a sustained basis.
