Will not hold rates high any longer than necessary: Rajan

The central bank is monitoring the liquidity situation and trying to keep the call money rate close to 8 percent, Rajan said.

India's central bank kept its key policy repo rate unchanged on Tuesday as widely expected, but warned about inflationary risks should a shortfall in monsoon rains spark a surge in food prices.
