    MUMBAI, May 22 (Reuters) - The Reserve Bank of India on

long lockdown to contain the spread of the novel coronavirus.
    The Reserve Bank of India cut its key lending rate or the
repo rate              by 40 basis points to 4.00% while the
reverse repo rate              was also lowered by a similar
margin to 3.35%.
