Is Inflation in India an Attractor of Inflation in Nepal?, Issues 2007-2269

Front Cover
International Monetary Fund, Asia and Pacific Department, Nov 1, 2007 - Inflation (Finance) - 30 pages
The paper attempts to answer some important questions around the inflationary process in Nepal, particularly the transmission of inflation from India. Because the Nepali currency is pegged to the Indian rupee and the two countries share an open border, price developments in Nepal would be expected to mirror to those in India. The results show that inflation in India and inflation in Nepal tend to converge in the long run. Our estimates indicate that the passthrough of inflation from India to Nepal takes about seven months. The paper draws some implications for the conduct of monetary policy in Nepal.
