India’s wholesale inflation rate has increased to 12.96 per cent in FY21-22
In the fiscal year 2021-22, wholesale inflation was 12.96 per cent.
Several causes, including the second wave of COVID-19, the Russia-Ukraine war, and other supply chain bottlenecks, have contributed to a spike in inflation.
Thus, it has raised the cost of basics such as food and commodities.
In 1991, when India was in the midst of a catastrophic economic crisis that threatened to force the government into debt, wholesale inflation was 13.7 per cent for the fiscal year 1991-92.
In India, the Reserve Bank of India’s priority has moved from encouraging growth to managing the effects of growing inflation. That has disrupted the government’s plans to produce high GDP growth.
Therefore, RBI has reduced the GDP growth prediction for the fiscal year 2022-23 to 7.2% from 7.8%.
