November Inflation eases to 9.11%
The November inflation numbers finally came down a bit to 9.11% against 9.73% reported in the month of October on the back of cooling food prices.

The Wholesale Price Index (WPI) inflation stood at 8.20% for the corresponding month previous year.

The recent inflation figures are still beyond the Reserve Bank India's (RBI) comfort zone, so the central bank may continue with its tough monetary policy stance.

The food inflation for the week ended November 26 dropped down to 6.6% due to good harvest and resulting fall in vegetable prices.

The RBI is going to meet on Friday, November 16, where it will review the inflation figures and it may remain mute on any policy actions as the headline inflation is coming down gradually.

The RBI has raised key policy rates for the 13 consecutive times since March 2010.

The fall in Indian Industrial Production (IIP) output is another crawling tension for the government. The rising interest rates has widely impacted the growth of the manufacturing and mining sector. The IIP output slipped into the negative zone to 5.1% for the first time since June 2009.

Recently, the government has cut the growth forecast to 7.5% but the dip in IIP output has raised fresh concerns about the growth of the economy.
