Price rise concerns resurface, February CPI at 3-month high

Mar 12, 2021 19:04 IST | By Editorji News Desk

Price rise worries are resurfacing at the recent print of Inflation for the month of February at 5.03% is the highest since November. 

The price rise was led largely from the food price index that is up 3.87% in February vs 1.89% in January. Fruits,Oil and meats were the highest pressure points on the basket. 

The actual price rise for the common man is much higher than the print showcases as it does not account for the rise in LPG and petrol prices over the last month.
