Actual Inflation has Stayed Below the RBI's Target
Feb 6, 2019

In 2016, the RBI adopted an inflation target of 4% (+/-2%) for next five years under the monetary policy framework.

However, as I mentioned earlier, since August last year, inflation has stayed below RBI's target of 4%.

In fact, in December, CPI-based retail inflation declined to an 18-month low of 2.2%.

Currently, the RBI's policy stance was 'calibrated tightening'.

But with the recent inflation data, the MPC may change its monetary stance to 'neutral', even if it does not cut the repo rate.
