However, since it has been measured monthly instead of weekly.

The challenges in developing economy are many, especially when in context of the monetary policy with the Central Bank , the inflation and price stability phenomenon. There has been a universal argument these days when monetary policy is determined to be a key element in depicting and controlling inflation.

The Central Bank works on the objective to control and have a stable price for commodities. A good environment of price stability happens to create saving mobilisation and a sustained economic growth. Rangarajan points out that there is a long-term trade-off between output and inflation. He adds on that short-term trade-off happens to only introduce uncertainty about the price level in future.

There is an agreement that the central banks have aimed to introduce the target of price stability while an argument supports it for what that means in practice.

It arises as the basis theme in deciding an adequate monetary policy. There are two debatable proportions for an effective inflation , whether it should be in the range of 1—3 per cent as the inflation rate that persists in the industrialized economy or should it be in the range of 6—7 per cent. While deciding on the elaborate inflation rate certain problems occur regarding its measurement. The measurement bias has often calculated an inflation rate that is comparatively more than in nature.

Secondly, there often arises a problem when the quality improvements in the product are in need to be captured out, hence it affects the price index. The consumer preference for a cheaper goods affects the consumption basket at costs, for the increased expenditure on the cheaper goods takes time for the increased weight and measuring inflation.

The Boskin Commission has measured 1. The commission points out for the developed countries comprehensive study on inflation to be fairly low. There is a puzzle formation between low-rate inflation and a high growth of money supply. When the current rate of inflation is low, a high worth of money supply warrants the tightening of liquidity and an increased interest rate for a moderate aggregate demand and the avoidance of any potential problems. Further, in case of a low output a tightened monetary policy would affect the production in a much more severe manner.

The supply shocks have known to play a dominant role in the regard of monetary policy. The bumper harvest in —99 with a buffer yield in wheat, sugarcane, and pulses had led to an early supply condition further driving their prices from what were they in the last year. The increased import competition since with the trade liberalisation in place have widely contributed to the reduced manufacturing competition with a cheaper agricultural raw materials and the fabric industry.

These cost-saving-driven technologies have often helped to drive a low inflation rate. The normal growth cycles accompanied with the international price pressures has several times being characterized by domestic uncertainties. Inflation in India generally occurs as a consequence of global traded commodities and the several efforts made by the Reserve Bank of India RBI to weaken rupee against the dollar.

This was done after the Pokhran Blasts in According to some experts the policy of RBI to absorb all dollars coming into the Indian economy contributes to the appreciation of the rupee. The RBI picture clearly portrays for subsidising exports with a weak dollar-exchange rate. All these account for a dangerous inflationary policies being followed by the central bank of the country.

There are several factors which help to determine the inflationary impact in the country and further help in making a comparative analysis of the policies for the same.

The major determinant of the inflation in regard to the employment generation and growth is depicted by the Phillips curve. It basically occurs in a situation when the aggregate demand in the economy has exceeded the aggregate supply.

It could further be described as a situation where too much money chases just few goods. A country has a capacity of producing just 5, units of a commodity but the actual demand in the country is 7, units. Hence, as a result of which due to scarcity in supply the prices of the commodity rises.
