The methodology used in the study is ARDL, which shows long run relation among the dependent and independent variables. The results of ARDL suggests that for Discount rate there should be a negative relation with Consumer price index and this validates the long-run but negative relation of Discount rate with Consumer price index while the broad money supply shows the positive relation with the Consumer price index.
