Core Inflation In India Remains Elevated According To RBI Governor

Feb 25 2022 5:17PM

According to the minutes of latest RBI monetary policy meeting, the central bank governor ShaktikataDas stated that there has been considerable improvement in the outlook for food prices since the lastbi-monthly review. Vegetable prices, after the spike of October-November, have seen significantseasonal correction which is likely to continue on fresh winter crop arrivals. In addition, the DecemberCPI print saw price corrections in edible oils and pulses coming from the supply side interventions bythe Government. The record Rabi acreage, propelled by a significantly higher acreage of oilseeds andpulses, along with prospects of higher yields for wheat, augur well for a bumper harvest of key fooditems. Further, considering the advance estimates of a robust kharif harvest, and on the assumptionof a normal monsoon, there is room for considerable optimism on the food inflation trajectory overthe next financial year.However, he noted that the renewed surge in international crude oil prices requires close monitoring.The RBI needs to remain watchful of the risks to domestic inflation arising from rise in internationalcommodity prices due to exogenous factors including geo-political developments. While core inflationremains elevated, demand-pull pressures are still muted, given the slack in the economy. On balance,inflation is likely to peak in Q4: 2021-22 and thereafter soften to around 5.0 per cent in H1:2022-23and further closer to the target in H2:2022-23 with an average inflation rate of 4.5 per cent for theentire financial year.
