RBI On Friday Monetary Policy Release
During the meeting of Bi-Monthly Monetary Policy Committee, The Reserve Bank Of India revealed the new projected inflation rate of 5.7 percent for the current financial year 2022-203 in comparison to 4.5 percent previously. Governor Shaktikanta Das said, “The spike in international crude oil prices since end-February poses substantial upside risk to inflation through both direct and indirect effects. Sharp increase in domestic pump prices could trigger broad-based second round price pressures.”
Petrol and Diesel prices were held stable for four months from November 4, 2021. After that starting from March 22, 2022 fuel rates hiked 14 times in 17 days. Increased prices of Crude Oil globally is a major responsible factor for these hike sessions in the country. India imports 85 percent of crude oil from other countries.
