The inflation expectation for the next two years slowed marginally to 1.80 percent in fourth quarter from 1.86 percent rise in the previous quarter.

The latest inflation expectation was the lowest since fourth quarter in 2016, when it was 1.68 percent.

Inflation expectations for one year ahead fell to 1.66 percent in fourth quarter from 1.71 percent in the preceding quarter.
