The Central Bank has decided to maintain current policy interest rates as the Monetary Board was of the view that the current monetary policy stance is appropriate.

Accordingly, the Monetary Board has decided to maintain the Standing Deposit Facility Rate and the Standing Lending Facility Rate of the Central Bank unchanged at 6.00 percent and 7.50 percent, respectively.

Sri Lanka's inflation measured by the Colombo Consumers' Price Index, increased to 1.7 per cent on a year-on-year basis in October 2015 from negative 0.3 per cent in September 2015.
