Abstract

To smooth volatile grain prices, the Indian Government procures additional grain quantities, creating agricultural commodity buffers, often redistributed to poor households. This policy can produce a demand shock, triggering increased inflation. This blog looks at new IGC research to model the distortionary effects of such policies and potential monetary policy responses
