  • Except for South Korea, all of these countries have higher inflation than India. The question is when the RBI will take the plunge and raise the repo rate.
  • Because the omicron strain’s path is unknown, growth will always be a risk for the entire global economy. It may not be possible to ignore inflation as temporary or driven by supply-side forces for much longer.
  • The central bank will have to make a decision here because, while CPI inflation is within tolerance, WPI inflation offers a different tale that is difficult to ignore. Currently, we can expect the RBI to tighten in stages: first, addressing liquidity, then boosting the reverse repo rate, and eventually, raising the repo rate.
