Mumbai: After rising to a 95-month (almost 8 years) high to 7.79 percent in Apr’22, CPI inflation moderated to 7.04% in May’22 due to broad-based deceleration. Core CPI also moderated in May to 6.09% as compared to 6.97% in Apr’22, State Bank of India’s Economic Research Department said Monday.
At least 59 percent of the increase in inflation is because of geopolitical conflict. Against the continued increase in inflation, it is now almost certain that RBI will raise rates in the forthcoming June and August policy and will take it to the pre-pandemic level of 5.15 percent by August.
