The rate cut came after a slump in food prices sent June consumer inflation to a more than five-year low of 1.54%, well below the RBI's 4% target and its projection of 2.0-3.5% for April-September.  


Overseas, European markets ebbed lower as energy shares pulled back after a drop in oil prices, while Asian markets ended mixed after Asian technology stocks hit 17-year peaks. On wall Street, E-Mini futures for the Dow were up 0.2%, suggesting the Dow index may open above 22,000 points later today.
