The Reserve Bank of India (RBI) will step in to provide more liquidity into the market if the need arises, deputy governor with the central bank Keshab Chandra Chakrabarty said on Wednesday.

He declined to say whether the RBI will resort to buying bonds through open market operations to inject liquidity.

Borrowings in the daily repo auction have risen above 1 trillion rupees for six consecutive sessions, nearly double the deficit level seen as acceptable by the RBI.
