Economists have begun speculating on what the RBI MPC would declare on Friday ahead of the meeting. Mr.Rajiv Shastri, Director and CEO of NJ Mutual Fund, said as a result of this that "We don't expect any change in policy rates. Liquidity conditions may change as a result of subsequent actions which may change the operative rate. Higher inflation is largely because of supply-side issues which cannot be addressed through higher rates. While persistent inflation can become systemic, I think we still have some time before we get there."

On the other side, Mr. Anand Nevatia, Fund Manager, TRUST Mutual Fund has said "Since the last policy, a hawkish Fed and the war in Europe have significantly increased the upside risk to inflation. Crude at the north of $100, will not only disturb the inflation expectations but also impact the deficit estimations. However, the commentary from both the GOI and MPC members in the interim has been more towards assuaging the fears due to the spike in crude and maintaining the focus on supporting growth. Expect the MPC to maintain status quo while revising upwards the inflation expectations, arising from a volatile global environment, rising commodity prices, and supply chain disruptions due to the war."
