Will it increase the realization of such expectations. The State Bank itself does not expect the government to meet the four percent deficit to GAP target for PAYOFF. The FYI fiscal deficit could exceed 5 percent of GAP. Moreover, meeting the FRR tax collection target of RSI. 1667 billion would require a 25. 6 percent growth which seems unlikely’ (UP). Why raise interest rates then? Pakistanis relatively high interest rates compared to other countries in the region such as India and China have failed to have a positive impact on private inflows.

This increased incapacity of the industrial sector to service its operations is graphically illustrated by the rise in non performing loans up from about RSI. 250 billion in January 2008 to almost RSI. 500 billion today. Market based monetary policy has failed. Under this policy regime the State Bank sector investment.
