Date:



April 2024 CPI Inflation: The Consumer Price Index (CPI) inflation for the month of April eased to 4.83%. The rural inflation was reported at 5.43% and concrete inflation got here in at 4.11%. The CPI inflation for the month of March 2024 stood at 4.85%. RBI’s Monetary Policy Committee has a CPI inflation goal of 4%, with a variety of 2-6%.
In final month’s financial coverage handle, RBI governor Shaktikanta Das had stated, “Two years ago, around this time, when CPI inflation had peaked at 7.8 per cent in April 2022, the elephant in the room was inflation.The elephant has now gone out for a walk and appears to be returning to the forest. We would like the elephant to return to the forest and remain there on a durable basis. In other words, it is essential, in the best interest of the economy, that CPI inflation continues to moderate and aligns to the target on a durable basis. Till this is achieved, our task remains unfinished.”
“The success in the disinflation process so far should not distract us from the vulnerability of the inflation trajectory to the frequent incidence of supply side shocks. Our effort is to ensure price stability on an enduring basis, paving the way for a sustained period of high growth,” he stated.
“Inflation is on a declining trajectory and GDP growth is buoyant. At this juncture, we should not lower our guard but continue to work towards ensuring that inflation aligns durably and sustainably to the target. Our goal is in sight and we must remain vigilant,” Das had stated.
