Amidst creeping inflation and a falling rupee, it would seem that the Monetary Policy Committee (MPC) was left with ___1___ option but to hike the repo rate by 25 basis points.

A 12 per cent rise in oil prices since the last MPC meet in April to $76 a barrel has played a role in pushing the rupee down by 5 per cent since its January value, to ₹67 today.
