Macroeconomic Indicators (18 June 2011)

The WPI inflation rate for April 2011 was 8.7%, while the CPI for industrial workers and agricultural labourers for the same month were 9.4% and 9.1%, respectively. The related inflation rates for April 2010 showed a wider difference: 10.9%, 13.3% and 15.0%, respectively. This is attributable mainly to food price inflation which is lower now than a year ago carrying a larger weight in the consumer price indices.
