BRASILIA, March 31 (Reuters) - Economists raised their
estimates for Brazil's 2014 inflation rate to 6.30 percent from
6.28 percent previously, according to a weekly central bank
survey on Monday.
    Estimates for economic growth and interest rates remained
largely unchanged in the survey of about 100 economists.
    Brazil's central bank targets inflation at 4.5 percent, with
a tolerance margin of 2 percentage points. A Reuters poll last
week showed inflation will likely breach the 6.5 percent target
ceiling in the third quarter.
