In a surprise move, RBI announced special open market operation to buy bonds worth Rs 10,000 crore and sell bonds of similar worth simultaneously. This step was taken specifically to lower longer-term yields, as they have consistently been on an up-move since RBI decided to keep the repo rate unchanged and slashed its forecast for economic growth rate to a decade low. Bond market enthusiasts and PSU banks will cheer this move, as the yield curve had steepened sharply despite RBI’s constant efforts to lower rates since the start of the year.
