Let us take a look at these big decisions.

End of 2000 rupee note :

RBI took out the Rs 2000 notes brought during demonetization from the system this year. The central bank decided to remove them on May 19. However, like demonetization, they were not stopped suddenly. People were given 4 months time to deposit Rs 2000 notes in the bank. Due to this, this note could be easily removed from the banking system.

Hit on unsecured loans like personal loan :

RBI first warned non-banking finance companies (NBFC) about the increasing number of personal loans. Then taking action, the risk weight on unsecured loans was increased. Risk weight for NBFCs was increased from 100 to 125. Due to this, the business of NBFC was adversely affected.

UPI transaction limit increased :

RBI has increased the transaction limit of UPI (Unified Payment Interface) to promote digital payments in financial services. UPI transaction limit for educational institutions and hospitals was increased from Rs 1 lakh to Rs 5 lakh.

No change in repo rate :

Apart from this, while reviewing the monetary policy in December, RBI kept the repo rate intact at 6.5 percent. RBI has kept the repo rate stable for the fifth consecutive time. In the year 2023, the repo rate was increased only in February 2023. Due to this, there was stability on the economic front and more turmoil.
