Chennai, May 23 (TIWN) India's central bank is mulling further rate hikes, said its Governor Shaktikanta Das.

In an interview to the CNBC TV18 channel, Das also said the RBI will release the new forecast for inflation next month.

He said the repo rate will be increased, but declined to say by what percentage.

Early this month, the Monetary Policy Committee (MPC) hiked the benchmark rates by 40bps to 4.4 per cent owing to the inflation at six per cent upper range for four months and Das said it was done to avoid a steep hike in June.

He said the measures taken by RBI will have a sobering effect on retail prices.

According to Das, the current account deficit will be comfortably managed this year.

On the crypto currency, he said the RBI has been cautioning against it and there are questions on how to regulate it.
