In view of analysts at TD Securities, India’s CPI likely increased by 6.6% YoY in Dec, an acceleration from 5.5% YoY recorded in the previous month.

Key Quotes: “The main culprit is likely to have been food inflation, which likely recorded a double digit increase, even as core inflation remains well behaved, helped by favourable base effects.”
