Buying power of ₹ in

If you had ₹ in your hand in , its adjusted value for inflation today would be ₹. Put another way, you would need ₹ to beat the rising inflation. When ₹ becomes equivalent to ₹ over time, the "real value" of a single Indian rupee decreases. In other words, a rupee will pay for fewer items at the store.

This effect explains how inflation gradually erodes the value of a rupee. By calculating the value in rupees, it's evident how ₹ loses its worth over years.

How to calculate the inflated value of ₹ in

To calculate the change in value between and today, we use the following inflation rate formula:

CPI Today / CPI in x Rupee Value in = Current Rupee Value

By plugging the values into the formula above, we get:

/ x ₹ = ₹

To buy the same product that you could buy for ₹ in , you would need ₹ in .

To calculate the cumulative or total inflation rate in the past years between and , we use the following formula:

CPI in - CPI in / CPI in x 100 = Cumulative Inflation Rate

By inserting the values to this equation, we get:

( - / ) x 100 = %

Alternate method to calculate today's value of money after inflation - Using compound interest formula

Given that money changes over time due to inflation, which acts as compound interest, we can use the following formula:

FV = PV (1+i/100)^n


  • FV = Future value
  • PV = Present value
  • i: Average interest rate (inflation)
  • n: Number of times the interest is compounded (i.e. # of years)

The future value in this case represents the amount obtained after applying the inflation rate to our initial value. In other words, it indicates how much ₹ is worth today. We have years between and . The average inflation rate was %.

Plugging in the values into the formula, we get:

(1+ % / 100 ) ^ = ₹
