Government data showed that the consumer price index-based
inflation or retail inflation came in 2.33% in Nov 2018 compared with
upwardly revised 3.38% (originally reported 3.31%) in the previous
month and 4.88% in the same month of the previous year. The consumer
food price index-based inflation subsequently stood at -2.61% in Nov
2018 compared with -0.86% in the previous month and 4.35% in the
same month of the previous year. The major reason for decline was
deflation in vegetables, pulses and products and sugar and confectionery
by 15.59%, 9.22% and 9.02%, respectively. Also, inflation for fuel and
light slowed to 7.39% in Nov 2018 from 8.55% in the previous month.
Government data showed that the Index of Industrial Production (IIP)
rose to 8.1% in Oct 2018 as against growth of 4.5% in the previous month
and 1.8% in the same period of the previous year. For the period from
Apr to Oct of 2018, IIP grew 5.6% as against an increase of 2.5% in the
same period of the previous year. On the sectoral front, the
manufacturing sector grew 7.9% in Oct 2018 compared with growth of
2.0% in the same month of the previous year. The mining sector
witnessed growth of 7% compared to decline of 0.2% in the same month
of the previous year. The electricity sector grew 10.8% in Oct 2018 as
against growth of 3.2% in the same month of the previous year.
The Asian Development Bank retained India’s economic growth
forecast at 7.3% for FY19 and 7.6% for FY20. However, the bank
mentioned that the domestic economy may witness downside due to
stress in the non-banking sector, limited fiscal space and escalating trade
tensions. However, some of these risks could be offset by a recent
decline in oil prices and by exports becoming more competitive as the
Indian rupee weakens.
