Vivek Rathi, Director – Research, Knight Frank India:

On the inflation front, elevated commodity and oil prices over the last year has put upward pressure on manufactured and other items despite an ebb in consumption demand at this juncture. However, as demand returns post the second wave of pandemic, higher prices will bite consumers across spectrum. On the consumer inflation front specifically, CPI at 4.29% for April 2021 is mainly influenced by fuel and light and miscellaneous segments. However, expectation of normal monsoon and accommodative RBI stance does provide some comfort at this juncture when we as a nation battle to safely come out of the second wave with minimal damage to life and livelihood.

Vivek Rathi, Director – Research, Knight Frank India:

The Indian economy was coping well with the pandemic created challenges until the second wave of COVID-19 hit us hard in the month of April 2021. Hence, economic indicators relating to period before April, when most regional lockdowns were introduced, will not capture the present turbulence in on ground economic situation. 

IIP for March 2021 has recorded a growth of 22.4% mainly on account of base effect. With productions holidays and factory shutdowns announced during this second wave, we need to brace for greater impact going forward even as base effect of national lockdowns last year determine number movements.
