CPI Inflation has moderated by 100 bps from January 2023 so there is a feeling that there may be some spike in inflation due to agri prices but will correct within the next couple of months. While the Indian economy is shows signs of robustness, RBI will continue to use instruments available to them in controlling inflation on an ongoing basis.”
