The Indian economy is becoming stronger, despite global economy troubles. This news comes from a report by the Reserve Bank of India (RBI). They say that things like people spending money and businesses investing in the country are helping the economy grow. The government is also spending a lot of money on important projects, which is good.
But there is a new problem that could affect the whole world’s money system. The price of crude oil, which is used for things like making gasoline, is going up a lot. It’s now above $90 for a barrel of oil, which is a lot. This is happening because countries like Saudi Arabia and Russia are producing less oil on purpose to make the prices higher. Also, the US dollar is getting stronger because people want to keep their money safe, which makes the oil prices go up even more. This could cause more inflation, which means prices for things could go up, and that’s not good.
But in India, there is some good news. The prices of things we buy every day, like food and clothes, are not going up as fast as before. In August, the prices actually went down a bit. The RBI thinks this trend will continue in September, which is good for people because it means they can buy things without spending too much economy.
The report says that in August, the cost of living, which is called inflation, was 6.8%, down from 7.4% in July. This is still higher than what the RBI wants, which is between 2% and 6%. Food prices also went down a bit, with vegetables getting cheaper. So, there is some hope that prices will stay stable or even go down more, which would be great for everyone.
