Taking to World News Observer, AKD said there was hardly any chance of interest rate going up any further.

However, he said rates of gas and electricity could increase as the impact of devaluation had not been passed on fully.

“Rupee had gone through a depreciation spree followed by subsequent rounds of depreciation, but the current government has to pass on the impact.”

He said the situation is favourable. Commenting on the impression that IMF would impose strict conditions resulting in tough times ahead, AKD said whenever interest rates were increased economy slowed down. Rates have been increased from 6.75% to 10.75%.

Moreover, several sectors such as steel, cement and power generation are in surplus capacity creating a supply glut.
