GDP flap could put rate hike plan on freeze

September 2, 2010 12:47:32 am

Even as the government said it will not scale down the April-June quarter GDP growth number of 8.8% released on Tuesday,an internal analysis of the data by government agencies has pinned the discrepancy on the incorrect use of inflation numbers. Minus the mistake in the inflation or deflator,while the GDP at factor cost will stay unchanged,the market price based estimate will climb to near 10%. However,the question marks on the scale of the revival in the economy could mean the Reserve Bank of India will not raise key interest rates anytime soon. Finance minister Pranab Mukherjee told reporters the government will stick to the GDP growth forecast range of 8.50-8.75% for 2010-11,despite the data which showed the demand and supply figures for the economy differing by a wide margin. According to Pronab Sen,former chief statistician,the deflator used to arrive at the production based GDP data is about 12.9%,but the alternative estimate of expenditure-based estimate has used a deflator of 21%,patently wrong. “If the two had used the same inflation index,the market price based estimate will climb to 10%,” he said.
