That is what the early reports seem to suggest ahead of the June MPC meet. RBI may not only raise its inflation target for FY23, but also give guidance for a series of rate hikes during the June MPC meet. RBI had hiked rates by 40 bps in a special MPC meet held in May and also announced 50 bps rise in CRR. However, the April inflation forecast at 5.7% looks too low and may revised up to 6.1%. That would be better way to defend the rupee with forex reserves already depleting by $50 billion.
