(GST),mistakes?and unfortunatelyin ministries whose job it is to produce data that policymakers rely on to make policy Data that allows for proper functioningand data that negates the likelihood of the blind leading the blind The important data on Indias industrial production has suffered from so much questioning that its pronouncements now hold as much sway as missives from the CAG There is only one other monthly statistic that has as much importance as the index of industrial productionor IIP This is the index of inflation One of the most important policy parameters in any modern economy is the rate of inflation The RBI governorDuvvuri Subbaraowhile announcing a surprise 50 basis point repo rate cut a few weeks agoemphasised that this cut might be the last because both growth and inflation were expected to surge in the new fiscal year Growth was to rise from the depths of 61 per cent observed in October-December 2011 to 75 per centand inflation was expecte d to surge back to the high 8-plus per cent levels observed over the last four years The very next daythe new CPI series revealed that Subbarao was almost as accurate a forecaster as the venerable Alan Greenspan at his peak This new CPI series registered close to double-digit inflation in March95 per cent There go any more rate cutsthough the larger question remains as to how the RBI governor will be able to achieve an acceleration in GDP growth of 14 per cent on the basis of more rate hikes to come Some two weeks agoI had advanced the hypothesis that the new CPI series may bejust may becomparable to the wonky IIP data I showed that this new series was systematically registering excess inflation of over 2 per cent in each month of 2012 In other wordsthe true CPI was likely to be closer to 7 per cent than 95 per cent Undoubtedlystill a worrisome and high inflation numberand one whose causes remain somewhat under-investigated Nevertheless7-odd per cent is consistent with a decline in inflation from more than the 9-plus per cent levels registered in each of the three years 2008-10 This article met with considerable scepticism But constructive suggestions were offered Most importantlythe critics and the sceptics pointed that the new series had new updated 2004-05 consumption patternmany new centres from where data were gatheredand some new items of consumptionfor examplecomputerslaptopsmobile phonesetc Sogiven all these differencesit was not surprising that the newtechnologically improved CPI should show a different rate of inflation True But differentand higherand higher by more than two percentage points each month Different weights etc can be expected to have a one-time effectbut a persistent inflation effect was likely as uncommon as a ministry spending seven times more than its allocation Of the three determinantsthe last two are expected to show lowernot higherinflation New centres normally mean that the poorer regions are a higher percentage of the totaland poorer regions tend to have both lower price levels and the same or lower inflation Ditto arguments for newer goods Such goods have a higher technology contentand technological progress tends to generate lower than average inflation Thusone is left with a change in the weights as a major explanatory for differences in inflation rates between the old CPI series and the new series The old and new rural CPI series can be compared to reveal contributions of each determinant The new series identifies 21 broad categories with 2004-05 expenditure weights derived from NSS household expenditure data NSS expenditures for these 21 items are averaged for the years 1983 and 1993-94 to approximate the old CPI expenditure weights of 1986-87 These weights allow us to identify the contribution of different factors The table details the results for the three monthsJanuary-March 2012 The contribution of weights is about 06 percentage points Howevermore than half of this contribution resides in two ambiguous categories accounting for only 56 per cent of the total baskethousehold requisites (45 per cent) and others (11 per cent) Net of these itemsthat isfor 944 per cent of the basketthe average difference in inflation due to differences in weights is only 027 percentage points These two items have averaged an annual inflation rate of 204 per cent in the last three monthswell above the average excluding these items of 75 per cent It is possible that Subbaraos prescient observation on resurgent inflation was based on prior knowledge of the new CPI data If soit underlies the fact that data affects policyas it should But bad data affecting policy is not something the Indian economy can afford as it lurches backward at ever slower rates of growth The writer is chairman of Oxus Investmentsan
