Inflation, which has been a key concern for the RBI, rose to 4.86 percent from 4.7 percent a month ago on costlier kitchen items like onion, rice and other cereals.
The central bank is scheduled to announce the first quarter monetary policy review on July 30 amid industry demand of reduction in interest rate to boost sagging growth.
Subbarao further said he had come here to discuss the issues concerning the forthcoming G20 Meeting in Moscow later in the week.
"I have come to discuss the G20 issues with the Finance Minister," he said. The meeting lasted for over an hour.
Chidambaram is also scheduled to participate in the G20 meeting of finance ministers and central bank governors to be held in Moscow on July 19 and 20.
Subbarao later had a separate meeting with Department of Economic Affairs Secretary Arvind Mayaram, Chief Economic Advisor Raghuram Rajan and newly appointed Additional Secretary K P Krishnan.
Subbarao is also believed to have discussed the declining rupee and macro economic situation with Finance Ministry functionaries.
