It would not be out of place to mention here that the annual consumer inflation rate in India was little changed at 6.26 percent in June from 6.30 percent in May of 2021, lower than market forecasts of 6.58 percent, according to Ministry of Statistics and Programme Implementation (MOSPI).
Retail inflation stayed above the Central bank target range of 2 percent to 6 percent for the second month, due to high global commodity prices.
India’s retail and wholesale inflation will probably accelerate during the second half of this year, according to economists surveyed by Bloomberg.
