The new interest rate is a jump from the 22.75 percent announced by the MPC about a month ago and the second rate hike by the current committee.

The MPC committee also changed the asymmetric corridor from +100/-700 to +100/-300 around the MPR; retained the CRR of commercial banks at 45 percent, adjusted the CRR of merchant banks from 10 percent to 14percent and held the liquidity ratio constant at 30 percent.
