Deflation is not a threat for India

India is not threatened by a deflation spiral that could derail economic development, the economic intelligence arm of global rating agency Moody's said today.

"Deflation is generally unwelcome by policymakers as it encourages consumers to delay purchases and businesses to postpone investment, which would eventually hurt GDP growth," Sherman Chan, an economist with Moody's Economy.com said.

"Lower prices may in fact boost consumption volumes, especially in poor regions. Meanwhile, cheaper input costs may also present a good opportunity to speed up construction of much needed infrastructure," Chan addded.

For the first time since the new wholesale price index (WPI) series started in 1995, India's annual rate of inflation has turned negative, falling to minus 1.61 percent for the week ended June 6. This has led to fears that this would lead to hoarding of food articles and a consequent rise in prices.

The inflation rate, which was 0.13 percent in the previous week, had last turned negative in 1977.

The world's second-fastest growing economy may also see negative inflation for the next 3-6 months triggering expectation of rate cuts by banks, the research arm of London-based Economist added.

"Emerging Asia will be the world's fastest-growing region over the next five years (2010-13), but this mainly reflects a relatively strong growth performance by India and China. The EIU expects India's real GDP growth to average 7.2 per cent over the next five years," it said.

Global share prices have been boosted on expectations that the worst of the global economic meltdown is over, however, a sustainable recovery is distant, it maintained.

There may be more green shoots of recovery in the global economy as fiscal and monetary stimulus packages start to have an impact, but "growth over the next two years will be marked by a high degree of volatility", Vohra said. There will be a substantial slowdown in quarter-on- quarter growth rates once the stimulus fades, he added.
