Inflation in India is monetary or structural? Can we really distinguish between the two?

When RBI increases the money supply in the market inflation is bound to increase but , on the other hand, if the government does not reduce it's expenditure and reduces its income (by providing various subsidies) monetary flow is bound to increase.
What does it mean, inflation is monetary due to structural issues??
