The Indian government and RBI have agreed to retain the bank’s current inflation target of 2%-6% for the next five years, Economic Affairs Secretary Tarun Bajaj said on Tuesday.

The earlier monetary policy framework, signed by Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s government with the Reserve Bank of India in 2015, had set up a monetary policy committee with a mandate to achieve 2%-6% headline retail inflation.

Going ahead with Rs 12 lakh crore gross borrowing of which Rs 7.24 lakh crore is in H1, said Bajaj.
