JAKARTA, March 21 (Reuters) - Indonesia's annual inflation rate in 2011 could be below 6 percent if the government delays a plan to cut fuel subsidies for private cars, said central bank governor Darmin Nasution on Monday.
Indonesia's chief economic minister Hatta Rajasa had said the government decided to delay the plan, without mentioning a timeline.
