The domestic stock market today is in a dilemma. While the actual growth for the September quarter surpassed the previous expectations of RBI and grew 7.6%, the inflation also rose during November.

The CPI rose to 5.5% in November compared to 4.87% and 5.02% in October and September respectively. It has also exceeded the upper tolerance level of RBI, which was fixed at 4%.
