The government's chief statistician Pronab Sen said on Tuesday the wholesale price inflation could cross 10% by end-March, depending how food prices behave in the next two weeks. He said the Reserve Bank of India (RBI) could tighten monetary policy even earlier than an April policy review. The monthly index touched a 14-month high of 8.56% in January 2010, leaping over the central bank's end-March target of 8.5%. The food articles index rose an annual 17.43% in January, near an 11-year high. The manufacturing inflation was up at 6.55% in January, in a sign that food inflation was impacting other sectors.
There are expectations that the central bank may take some monetary action at its next policy review in April 2010 as industrial output growth also picked up pace, growing 16.8% in December from a year earlier. RBI Deputy Governor Subir Gokarn said last week that no monetary action was expected before April unless there was a completely unanticipated or unwarranted event.
Sen said any hike in petrol and diesel prices, as recommended by a government panel on fuel pricing, would have more impact on the consumer price index than on wholesale price inflation. Sen said that although industrial production grew at a higher-than-expected 16.8% in December from a year ago, the government should wait for further consolidation of economic recovery before withdrawing fiscal stimulus measures. India has provided fiscal stimulus measures worth around Rs 1,86,000 crore ($40 billion) and further additional spending of about $4 billion since December 2008.
The Reserve Bank of India cannot target inflation as transmission of monetary policy is muted in the country, its governor D Subbarao said on Tuesday. He added it was difficult for monetary policy to attack supply-side driven inflation.
The high fiscal deficit is not sustainable over a long period and consolidation of public finances was needed as growth picks up, C. Rangarajan, the prime minister's economic advisory panel chairman said on Tuesday.
The next major trigger for the stock market is the Union Budget 2010-2011 on 26 February 2010. Among the key issues, analysts and economists expect the Finance Minister to provide a road map for the introduction of the key direct and indirect tax reforms viz. the direct tax code (DTC) and the Goods & Services Tax (GST) in the Budget. The GST will enable the Indian corporate sector to get much-needed relief from a multiplicity of state and Central taxes. However, several critical issues need to be resolved before it can be put in place. The Finance Minister must utilize this opportunity to effect a smooth transition to this new system.
The hope of direct tax reform has risen with the release of the draft Direct Tax Code by the government in calendar 2009. The Direct Taxes Code is supposed to replace the Income Tax Act by consolidating and amending income tax provisions for all categories of people and institutions. The DTC proposes doing away with tax exemptions and bringing under the tax purview a number of entities including trusts that pay no tax at the moment. The thrust of the new code is to promote efficiency and equity by eliminating distortions in the tax structure, introducing moderate levels of taxation and expanding the tax base.
Meanwhile, the government may increase excise duties as a first step towards a gradual winding down of fiscal stimulus measures. It may also raise the service tax rate to 12% from 10%. It may be recalled that the government had slashed the Central Value Added Tax (Cenvat) rate for excise duty from 14% to 8% in two rounds starting in December 2008. It had also cut service tax by 2 percentage points. These reductions were effected in order to provide a stimulus to domestic industry. Since the overall prospects for growth are much brighter today, the finance minister may withdraw a part of the stimulus in order to boost tax revenue.
The Finance Minster may project a lower fiscal deficit for 2010-11 based on higher revenue projections due to economic rebound. It remains to be seen if there are structural reforms to reduce the subsidy burden such as decontrol of petrol and diesel prices as recommended by the Kirit Parikh committee recently.
It also remains to be seen if there is any progress on financial sector reforms. The pending financial sector reforms include raising the foreign direct investment (FDI) cap in private sector insurance companies from 26% to 49% - a Bill for which is pending in Parliament.
As far as government expenditure is concerned, the thrust areas could be agriculture, water resources, power, roads & other infrastructure projects and social sector schemes.

Meanwhile, Reliance Industries may reportedly be forced to raise its offer for LyondellBasell or abandon its bid all together after the target settled a dispute with creditors that paved the way for an exit from bankruptcy. Lyondell said on Tuesday it would continue with its reorganisation plan aimed at exiting bankruptcy.
