New Delhi: Food price index rose 9.01% and the fuel price index climbed 12.46% in the year to 28 May, government data showed on Thursday.
In the previous week, annual food and fuel inflation stood at 8.06% and 12.54% respectively.
The primary articles price index was up 11.52%, compared with an annual rise of 10.87% a week earlier.
The weekly food inflation has eased after staying in double digits for much of 2010, but headline inflation at 8.66% in April remains considerably above the central bank’s comfort level and is seen pressuring interest rates higher.
