Government to set up inflation target, RBI to implement: Chidambaram

New Delhi, March 07 (ANI): Union Finance Minister P Chidambaram asserted on Friday that the government has the right set up an inflation target while the Reserve Bank of India's (RBI) role is to implement the decision. The comment by Chidambaram comes after a RBI panel in January proposed moving to an inflation target of 4 percent in three years, with a 2 percent band on either side when setting monetary policy, sharply below current levels. The recommendation raised concerns about a potential clash with the traditionally more pro-growth finance ministry, which were further reinforced after RBI surprised investors in January by raising interest rates by a quarter percentage point, its third hike in five months. Chidambaram made it clear that parliament will set an inflation target and entrust the central bank to implement the propositions. Mar 7, 2014
