New Delhi: India’s consumer price index (CPI) rose 11.72% in August from a year earlier, marginally lower than July’s annual rise of 11.89%, government data showed on Wednesday.
The consumer price index for industrial workers increased by 2 points to 162 in August from a month ago.
Last week, data showed the wholesale price index rose 0.37% in the 12 months to 12 September.
The wholesale price index is more closely watched because it covers a higher number of products and is released weekly.
