The index for ‘Manufacture of Wearing Apparel’ sub-group declined by 0.3 per cent to 138.5 from 138.9 for the previous month due to lower price of manufacture of knitted and crocheted apparel (1 per cent).

The index for fuel and power (weight 13.15 per cent), on the other hand, increased by 0.4 per cent to 96.9 from 96.5 for the previous month due to higher price of non-coking coal, bitumen, ATF, naphtha, furnace oil, kerosene, HSD and petrol.
