Retail Inflation At 6.09% In June As Prices Of Food Items Rise
PTI - 13 July 2020

New Delhi, July 13: Retail inflation rose by 6.09 per cent in June, mainly on account of higher prices of food items, the government data showed on Monday.

Food inflation in June increased by 7.87 per cent, according to the Consumer Price Index (CPI) data. The inflation figures are based on data collected from limited markets because of the restrictions imposed on account of coronavirus pandemic, the Ministry of Statistics & Programme Implementation said in a release.

The data collected, however, did not meet the adequacy criteria for generating robust estimates of CPIs at the state-level, it added.

The retail inflation based on the CPI was 3.18 per cent in June 2019.

The government had released truncated CPI data for April and May in the backdrop of the lockdown to contain COVID-19 pandemic.
