June 15, 2010
Finance Minister Pranab Mukherjee also today said RBI will consider appropriate policy action to contain inflation.
Inflation entered double digits for the first time in nearly 20 months at 10.16 per cent in May, as per provisional figures. However, as per revised numbers, inflation has already crossed 11 per cent as of March 2010.
"High inflation is a concern. Inflation is always a concern and will remain a concern (for RBI). At some stage monetary policy has to address the issue," RBI deputy governor K C Chakrabarty told reporters on the sidelines of a function in the capital today.
