India’s retail inflation or CPI fell to a one-year low of 5.72% in December, owing to a sharp deflation (-15.08%) in vegetables and easing price pressures in the broader “food and beverages” category, according to official data released on Thursday. The inflation stood at 5.88% in November 2022. With this, the headline inflation number remained below the upper limit of the Reserve Bank of India’s (RBI’s) medium-term target of 2-6% for the second straight month (it was previously above that range for 10 long months). On the other hand, US CPI inflation in December eased. The year-on-year inflation number for December has fallen to 6.5% from 7.1% in November 2022.
