Inflation is likely to remain above 4 percent for the next 12 months, in which case inflation will not come down. Rather, inflation is expected to be above the target, so people have to prepare themselves for inflation.

Rather, inflation is expected to remain above target. Das claims that the situation is slowly improving, but if inflation is to be controlled, there is no way without raising interest rates, so people have to be prepared to bear the brunt of inflation.

What is the reason for increasing the repo rate
Increasing the repo rate of RBI like this is a matter of concern, but even bigger concern is the comment of Reserve Bank Governor Shaktikanta Das. Due to rising inflation, the Reserve Bank has had to increase the repo rate. The central government has no solution to deal with the recession, so the repo rate has been increased. This is not reducing inflation.
