  1. indices still are not shy of hovering above 170 and this trend further indicates that the inflation has not been in control for sometime now. On an average the price point increase is between 9-11 and which by no means is going to plummet but spiral up again .Inflation will witness start of a new year with no respite and while inflation is having a common man look for ways to sustain Government has not implemented or come up with any intelligent inflation controlling measures up to now.
    The way things are looking up Central/State Govt Servants are not far from getting another bonanza of a 10% percentage hike in Dearness allowance and when gone past 50% some of the other allowances will raise their heads to be hiked by 25%
