Estimate 10 year yield at 7.4% over the course of H1 FY2023: Ms. Aditi Nayar, Chief Economist, ICRA

Published on: 3:30 pm

  • As we had expected, the 10-year G-sec yield breached 7.0% after the policy announcement. We anticipate the 10 year yield to rise to as much as 7.4% over the course of H1 FY2023, as the market's views on the number and timing of rate hikes crystallise. Even as the Governor hinted at utilizing various tools to manage the government borrowing programme, comments on the yield curve being a public good were missing in his morning speech, suggesting that yields will be allowed to move up gradually.
  • The MPC's revised GDP and inflation forecasts of 7.2% and 5.7%, respectively, for FY2023 (with crude averaging at US$100/barrel) are echoed by our own projections (7.2% and 5.6%, respectively, with crude @US$105/barrel). Our projection of the CPI inflation of 6.3% for Q1 FY2023, assumes a full pass through of the pending transmission of the crude price hike to petrol and diesel, without any excise cut. Read more

Expect 50-75 basis points repo rate hike in fiscal 2023: Dharmakirti Joshi, Chief Economist, CRISIL
