Context – Premature tightening may lead to stagflation: RBI report
- The Reserve Bank of India (RBI) has cautioned that premature tightening of the monetary policy could bring about the stagflation — slow growth and high level of unemployment and inflation — that “all fear, quashing growth just as the economy is recovering”.
- “Consequently, policy support for a sustained and inclusive recovery may be needed for longer,” RBI said in its ‘State of the economy’ report.
- On unwinding of the accommodative monetary policy, RBI Governor Shaktikanta Das had said on October 8, “This process has to be gradual, calibrated and nondisruptive, while remaining supportive of the economic recovery.”
