After a four-month respite, India's fuel prices have begun climbing since March 22, when the results of five Assembly elections were released.

In its monetary policy review on Friday, the Reserve Bank of India (RBI) raised its inflation forecast for the current fiscal year 2022-23 from 4.5 percent to 5.7 percent. Inflation must be kept between 2% and 6%, according to the central bank's mandate. In February, the CPI-based inflation rate was 6.07 percent, compared to 6.01 percent in January.

The jump in international crude oil prices since February's end, according to RBI Governor Shaktikanta Das, offers a major upside risk to inflation through both direct and indirect consequences. "A sharp increase in domestic pump prices might lead to broad-based second-round pricing pressures," says the report.

Due to high fuel prices and global supply chain delays caused by the continuing Russia-Ukraine conflict, key commodity prices in India have remained high, pushing up enterprises' input costs. The RBI anticipates worldwide crude oil prices to remain at USD 100 per barrel for the current fiscal year in order to satisfy inflation and growth objectives, according to Das.

Vegetable and milk prices, among other vital commodities, are on the rise in India owing to rising transportation expenses, since gas and diesel prices have lately risen.

The RBI reduced its GDP growth prediction for 2022-23 to 7.2 percent, down from 7.8 percent previously anticipated, in its first bi-monthly monetary policy review for the current fiscal year on Friday.
