Indian foodThe Times of India: Inflation shot up to 8.43% in December, from 7.48% in the previous month, as prices of certain food and non-food items continued to show an upward trend.  After moderating somewhat in November, the overall inflation, measured on the basis of wholesale prices, rose in December as vegetable, like onion, and other protein-based items became expensive.

Follow up:

With the inflation showing no signs of moderation, it is widely expected that RBI will raise the key policy rates during its quarterly monetary policy review on January 25.

For October, the figure has been revised upwards to 9.12% from the provisional number of 8.58%.

It may be recalled, the food inflation, which accounts for over 14% in the overall WPI inflation, has remained high through December and stood at 16.91%.  Read more at The Times of India.....
