“The meeting of the MPC during September 29, 30 and October 1, 2020 as announced… is being rescheduled. “The dates of the MPC’s meeting will be announced shortly,” the RBI said in a press release.
RBI is awaiting the government’s decision on new external members to the committee. As per the RBI Act, external members of MPC have a tenure of four years.
