New Delhi, Aug 19 : India's economy faces increased risks of stagflation, which may slow down the effectiveness of monetary and fiscal measures adopted by the central bank and government, Acuite Ratings said.

In a report, Acuite said that immediate steps need to be taken to bring down food inflation, 'the higher levels of which have already started to spill over to core inflation'.
