The government and the RBI need to work in tandem to have a comprehensive inflation strategy for the medium term to reduce any adverse impact of pandemic which is still raging in India. At a time when the RBI has no option but to keep interest rate low and infuse liquidity, the retail inflation poses a big danger. The retail inflation or the consumer Price index has been over 6 per cent plus for the fifth month in a row, which is above the RBI's tolerance limit. This steep rise in inflation is a bit puzzling when there is a widespread demand destruction post the Covid lockdown. While food prices , which have over half the share in the CPI basket , is the main culprit , the inflationary expectations in the economy are also on the rise. A large government borrowing programme and a likely debt monetisation would also add fuel to inflation fire.  Watch the video as Anand Adhikari, Executive Editor, Business Today, explains the strategy the country needs to adopt.

Asset Quality Review is a detailed and thorough inspection of loan books by the regulator. Repayment capacity of borrowers is also very important. An asset quality review is  more like a stress test of the loan portfolio done by the regulator. This exercise is very common in the developed world. Five years ago, the RBI under the former governor Raghuram Rajan had initiated an asset quality review in the banking sector. That exercise resulted in NPAs increasing from Rupees 4 lakh crore to Rupees 10 lakh crore in the banking system.
