The government is taking a host of measures to tame inflation, Kaushik Basu, the chief economic adviser at the finance ministry said on Thursday.
In its October 2009 policy review, the Reserve Bank raised its WPI inflation projection for end-March 2010 to 6.5%, with an upside bias, from 5% earlier. The central bank is scheduled to review its policy on 29 January 2010, and signs of strengthening growth and a surge in headline inflation have the market factoring in tighter policy, including possible increases in interest rates.
Data early this week showed that industrial output grew at its fastest pace in two years in November 2009, rising 11.7%. The Indian economy is expected to grow by around 7.75% in the fiscal year to March 2010, but food price inflation is a major concern, Finance Minister Pranab Mukherjee said on Wednesday.
The head of the Asian Development Bank Haruhiko Kuroda warned it was too early for Asian countries to end stimulus policies started during the financial crisis and said he saw no big risk of price bubbles in China. Kuroda said on Thursday that policymakers still needed to restore demand and stabilise financial systems to support the economic recovery.
Closer home, the government may reportedly revert to pre-slowdown indirect tax rates in two phases beginning April 2010 as the government weighs likely harm to the ongoing economic recovery if a rollback is done at one go with the urgent need to move towards greater fiscal prudence. A suggestion to undertake a partial rollback figured in the first round of pre-Budget consultations between Prime Minister Manmohan Singh, finance minister Pranab Mukherjee and other policymakers recently. With the economy now on a firmer footing and industrial output growth strong, officials are looking to roll back the measures taken as part of the fiscal stimulus to shield the economy from the global recession. While those measures helped realise the primary goal, they pushed fiscal deficit to a 16-year high of 6.8% of the GDP.
The government has extended duty-free imports of white sugar by nine months to 31 December 2010 as it looks to cover a supply shortfall, but has adequate wheat and rice stocks, Farm Minister Sharad Pawar said on Wednesday.
Speaking after a cabinet panel reviewed food prices, Pawar said the federal government would allow millers outside Uttar Pradesh state to process raw sugar held up in ports after the Uttar Pradesh state government, under pressure from cane farmers, banned processing of the raws. The government is struggling to contain rising food prices, with food inflation hovering near 20% in December 2009. Duty-free imports of white sugar were earlier allowed up to 31 March 2010, while raw sugar shipments, without any import duty, are already allowed up to 31 December 2010. Pawar said states needed to take stern action against hoarding to help arrest rising food prices. He also said the country had more than adequate stocks of wheat and rice.

In data released yesterday, the Federal Reserve said in its Beige Book regional business survey that the economy improved in 10 of the Fed's 12 districts last month, marking a broadening of the recovery. US economic activity remained at a low level as 2010 began but was improving modestly and beginning to broaden out to include wider swaths of the country, the Federal Reserve said on Wednesday. The US treasury department said the government racked up $ 91.85 billion budget deficit in December, a record for the month, marking a record 15th straight month of government red ink.
Two top Federal Reserve policy-makers said on Wednesday that the US central bank will need to be certain the economic recovery is firmly in place before tightening its monetary policy stance. New York Federal Reserve Bank President William Dudley and Chicago Federal Reserve Bank President Charles Evans said continued credit problems and a high rate of unemployment are constraints on the US economic recovery.
The Fed has slashed rates to near zero and pumped over $1 trillion into the financial system to prevent banking failures and pull the economy out of the worst recession in decades. It has pledged to keep rates ultra-low for a long time to nurture the recovery. Evans, who is not a voter on the Fed's policy-setting panel this year, also said policymakers would have to see convincing signs of healing in labor markets, where the jobless rate has been stuck at 10%, before tinkering with policy. Steps to withdraw the Fed's extraordinary support for the economy, including raising rates or withdrawing liquidity from the system, are unlikely "any time soon," Evans said.
The Fed's next policy meeting is on 26-27 January 2010, and it is not expected to make changes to rates or its promise to keep borrowing costs at rock-bottom levels for an extended period. The comments from Evans and Dudley, seen in the middle ground between the US central bank's anti-inflation hawks and pro-growth doves, suggest the central bank is in no rush to move toward raising interest rates.
