Bond Yield Rise After RBI's Das Says Future Policy Stance Dependent

So, bond yield inched higher to 6.433% from its previous close of 6.364%. As per a Bloomberg News, the RBI's future course of action will likely be dependent on incoming economic data which after a series of moves this year means nearly 100 bps of rate cut.
"The accommodative stance will depend on how inflation numbers look, how the growth numbers look. Primarily on how inflation looks," Bloomberg reported quoting Das.

Also, the Indian rupee was dragged lower after a stronger dollar weighed as traders in the market were pulling away from the nearly 0.5 bps rate cut by the Fed Reserve this month.
