The interest rates in India will remain steady
till the year of 2007, said Deepak Parekh, chairman, HDFC, despite the RBI's
recent hike in the CRR rates.
The Reserve Bank of India (RBI) raised the cash reserve ratio (CRR) to 7 per cent from 6.5 per cent in its monetary policy review last month to mop up funds that could fuel inflation.
But it left its short-term lending rate steady, as expected, after raising it five times since mid-2006.
