We could get to about 7% by March 2013. That also depends on how food prices behave in between. I would say that the tendency for inflation hereafter would be in the downward direction.

C. Rangarajan, Chairman of the Prime Minister's Economic Advisory Council, in The Economic Times

"Inflation is likely to remain high in the 8-8.2 per cent range until the quarter ended December 2012 and it is expected to 'moderate' to around 7-7.5 per cent level by quarter ended March 2013
