Cost Inflation Index in India from 1980 to current financial year

Published: July 16, 2021 at 3:26 pm

The cost inflation index in India is currently published with 2001-02 as the base year. It was earlier published with 1981-82 as the base year. You can find both data sets here. That is from 2001-02 to the current financial year – this is the list to be used for income tax computation – and from 1981-82 to the current financial year (obtained by merging both the lists – research purposes only). See for example Rs.1000 in 1980 is only worth Rs. 63 in 2021! How to protect our money?
