Abstract: In this paper an attempt has been made to analyse the impact of Inflation on per capita income of emerging economies. In order to achieve the objective of the study the researchers have taken five major emerging countries of the world which are the members of BRICS. For the purpose of analysis, the data of thirteen years has been taken from 1999 to 2011. After employing the regression model, the results confirm that independent variable (inflation) does not statistically influence the dependent variable (Per Capita Income) in three countries which are India, Brazil and South Africa. However, in the other two countries (China and Russia) the findings affirm the independent variable (Inflation) does statistically influence the dependent variable (Per Capita Income).Therefore, it can be concluded that a change in the inflation rate can not necessarily bring a change in the per capita income of a country.
