The government is mulling to raise the inflation target to 5 percent from the current 4 percent, which may give the Reserve Bank of India (RBI) more room to cut policy rates.

The government might hike the inflation target to 5 percent, which is a part of the monetary policy framework, with a tolerance level of plus and minus 2 percent from 1 April, Mint reported.

The decision might be announced during the upcoming Budget for FY22, along with other fiscal measures, the report said.
