India: Inflation continues to fall in August

September 13, 2021

Consumer prices increased 0.25% from the previous month in August, easing from July's 0.74% increase. Looking at the details of the release, food and non-alcoholic beverage prices were relatively unchanged over the previous month—contrasting July’s relatively sharp rise—while the increase in energy prices slowed.

Inflation eased to 5.3% in August from July’s 5.6%, while the trend pointed down mildly, with annual average inflation coming in at 5.7% in August (July: 5.8%).

Our panel projects inflation to average 5.5% in FY 2021, which is unchanged from last month’s forecast, and 4.7% in FY 2022, which is also unchanged from last month’s projection.
