The Ministry further states that this is a significant move in signaling a shift in stance and direction for policy going forward, as the RBI's statement has noted.

The Ministry further states that this move will provide a fillip to the economy directly by increasing the private sector's ability and willingness to spend.

It should also help indirectly by improving balance sheet of the Corporate Sector and banks, facilitating an increase in the demand for and supply of credit.

The Ministry further states that along with other policy actions already taken by the Government and other that are under its consideration, this move represents one more step towards reviving investment and realizing India's medium term growth potential.
