In 2013, the consumer price index replaced the wholesale price index (WPI) as a main measure of inflation. In India, the most important category in the consumer price index is Food and beverages (45.86 percent of total weight), of which Cereals and products (9.67 percent), Milk and products (6.61 percent), Vegetables (6.04 percent), Prepared meals, snacks, sweets, etc. (5.55 percent), Meat and fish (3.61 percent), and Oils and fats (3.56 percent). Miscellaneous accounts for 28.32 percent, of which Transport and communication (8.59 percent), health (5.89 percent), and education (4.46 percent). Housing accounts for 10.07 percent; Fuel and light for 6.84 percent; Clothing and footwear for 6.53 percent; and Pan, tobacco and intoxicants for 2.38 percent. Consumer price changes in India can be very volatile due to dependence on energy imports, the uncertain impact of monsoon rains on its large farm sector, difficulties transporting food items to market because of its poor roads and infrastructure and high fiscal deficit.

Latest Updates

Annual consumer price inflation in India unexpectedly eased to 5.72% in December of 2022 from 5.88% in November, beating market forecasts of 5.9%. It is the lowest reading since December of 2021, also marking the second straight month the inflation stays below the Reserve Bank of India target of 2-6%. Prices slowed for food (4.19% vs 4.67%), pushed down by a 15.1% fall in vegetables; clothing and footwear (9.58% vs 9.83%); and housing (4.47% vs 4.57%). On the other hand, prices rose faster for fuel and light (10.97% vs 10.62%), pan, tobacco, and intoxicants (2.55% vs 2.02%), and miscellaneous (6.17% vs 6.07%).
