Two incarcerated members of Russian punk band Pussy Riot could be home by the start of 2014 if President Vladimir Putin signs off on an amnesty deal.

A Kremlin human rights adviser has revealed the Russian leader is seriously considering letting Nadezhda Tolokonnikova and Maria Alyokhina walk free almost three months before their prison terms are currently set to end.

The two rockers were jailed for two years in 2012 after they were found guilty of an act of hooliganism following a protest against Putin inside a Moscow church.

According to Reuters, Putin has told his presidential human rights council to make suggestions for an amnesty to mark the 20th anniversary of the passing of Russia's post-Soviet constitution in December 1993.

Rights council chief Mikhail Fedotov believes the two jailed Pussy Riot members are on the list.
