"We exchanged our views on the current macroeconomic situation," Rajan told reporters after the meeting, which was also attended by Department of Economic Affairs Secretary Arvind Mayaram.

Rajan had surprised the markets by leaving all key policy rates unchanged at the mid-quarter policy review on December 18, notwithstanding persistent high inflationary pressure.

A key short-term lending rate was kept unchanged at 7.75 percent while the cash reserve ratio remained at four percent.

Rajan was Chief Economic Advisor in the Finance Ministry before taking over as RBI Governor on September 4.
