The softening in CPI is likely to be due to lower readings on housing, clothing, transport, communication. IIP is likely to be in positive terrain with electricity generation and mining to aid growth. The CNBC-TV18 poll estimates core inflation to be sticky at around 4.9-5.0 percent.

The pay hike impact will also jack up food prices, the report said, adding that "food prices could consequently increase, leading to inflation rising above the baseline by 80-100 bps in 2016-17, even assuming effective government policies relating to food stocks, procurement and minimum support prices".

ICRA expects headline CPI inflation to ease further in March 2016, led by both food and core inflation, and print close to the RBIs target of 5.0% for March 2017. This would support the case for a 25 bps cut in the Repo rate.

With food inflation contracting nearly 500 bps over last one year, Chinoy says there is growing conviction that some structural fixes have played out well.
