MUMBAI: Reserve Bank governor Shaktikanta Das on Thursday expressed satisfaction with bankers for passing its rate cuts to borrowers, saying the monetary transmission has been full and reasonably swift.

He further said transmission, which was bothering the central bank for a long time, is expected to improve with the introduction of linking loan pricing to an external benchmark system, which banks have adopted now.
