Repo rate– It is the rate at which the central bank of a country ( reserve bank of India in case of India) lends money and provides a loan to the commercial banks.
Reverse rate- it is the rate at the which the reserve bank of India borrows money from commercial banks.
Hike on repo rate will directly affect on borrowers as a bank will also hike the rate on loans and many major banks like SBI, ICICI, PNB has already raised marginal cost of fund based landing rate by to 0.1 percent before the announcement of RBI making home loans more expensive for the consumers.
