India will announce many new measures in the next few days and weeks to curb non-essential imports in order to strengthen the rupee and contain inflation, Finance Minister P. Chidambaram said on Saturday.
The government has already banned duty-free import of flat-screen televisions from August 26, adding to a package of measures designed to prop up the rupee.
"I hope that all these measures taken together will have a beneficial impact on inflation," Chidambaram told lawmakers.
He added that no decision has been taken to raise fuel prices.
