India has been the cynosure for the past few years in the global economic arena owing to itschanging inflation patterns. Between the fiscal year 2004-05 and 2007-2008, India hadexperienced an average growth rate of more than 9%, but the global crunch pinched theeconomy so hard that the economy gave in to the adverse external shocks and few sectorsexperienced a slump. Inflation in India 2009 stands at 11.49% Y-o-Y. The inflation rate isreferred to the general rise in prices, taking into consideration the common man's purchasing power. Inflation is mostly measured in CPI.In 2008 industry bodies, policy makers were all worried with the steadily-mounting inflation.The middle of the year augmented the tension as the majority of the population was wary of adouble-digit inflation but things changed within few months. Inflation in India actually fell below 1% during the third week of March, 2009. The moderate inflation is the desirable of alltoo much of it or too less of it, in every way worries the policy makers.Understanding in the right manner inflation is such a situation when too many people chasetoo few goods and too few services, which automatically makes the prices of the goods andservices high because of the high demand. At the same time, when inflation falls below thedesired mark (in the negative territory), then too few people chase too many goods and toomany services, making the prices of the goods and services under-priced.The India inflation is actually measured by the Y-o-Y variation in the Wholesale Price Index.While the inflation as measured by WPI is at present at a very low level, the inflationmeasured by the Consumer Price Index is at elevated levels of 9 to 10%
