Pranab hopeful of keeping inflation down to 6% by fiscal end

Washington: Union finance minister Pranab Mukherjee is hopeful that the steps taken by the government and by the Reserve Bank of India (RBI) would bring inflation down to 6% by the end of this financial year, reports PTI.

"I do hope it would be possible for us to do and (that) we can end the financial year with an inflation rate of about 6%," Mr Mukherjee said yesterday. He was addressing an audience at the annual lecture series of the Woodrow Wilson Center and Federation of Indian Chamber of Commerce and Industry.

The finance minister expressed his concern over inflationary pressures on food items. "We have taken steps to improve the supply side by easing import of food items that are in short supply," he said. Mr Mukherjee is in Washington for the annual meeting of the International Monetary Fund and the World Bank.

On the demand side, the latest revision of (interest) rates has created a situation where a part of the excess liquidity would be mopped up by the RBI, he said. "...we are accepting the policy through which we can strike a balance so that the growth is not retarded, and at the same time inflationary pressure is being reduced," he said.
