India’s central bank Governor Shaktikanta Das said there’s more room for easing monetary policy, but a lot depends on how these actions are timed.

“It’s a very clear forward guidance,” Das said at the Times Network India Economic Conclave in Mumbai on Monday. “While taking a pause, we very carefully and definitively said there’s space for further monetary action, but its timing will have to be decided.”
