The MPC also kept the marginal funding and overnight borrowing rates constant at 9.25 and 7.25 percent, respectively.

According to the bank's statement, the late liquidity window interest rates -- between 4 p.m. and 5 p.m. -- remained steady with borrowing rate at 0 percent and lending rate at 12.25 percent.
