Gauging India's Inflation in Real Time

Webinar Overview


Since January 2022, India’s headline retail inflation has remained consistently above RBI’s inflation target of 6%. With inflation persistently climbing upwards since July, there is a need to understand its real time movement. The CPI data is released on the twelfth of every month, but there is a way to gauge the current movement of the indicator using daily retail prices. India’s inflation basket predominantly consists of food and beverages, occupying more than 45% of the total. In addition, the weight for fuel and light stands at 6.84%, and hence, the two categories effectively account for over 50% of the total basket.
