The index for ‘Manufacture of Wearing Apparel’ sub-group declined by 0.4 per cent to 138.6 from 139.1 for the previous month due to lower price of knitted and crocheted apparel (1 per cent).

The index for ‘Manufacture of Textiles’ sub-group also rose by 1.1 per cent to 118.9 from 117.6 for the previous month due to higher price of synthetic yarn and woollen yarn (4 per cent each), texturised & twisted yarn, manufacture of other textiles and manufacture of made-up textile articles, except apparel (2 per cent each) and viscose yarn, manufacture of cordage, rope, twine & netting and cotton yarn (1 per cent each).  However, the price of knitted & crocheted fabrics (1 per cent) declined.

The index for fuel and power (weight 13.15 per cent) also rose by 2.2 per cent to 107.2 from 104.9 for the previous month due to higher price of lube oils, naphtha, HSD, petrol, LPG, furnace oil, bitumen, kerosene and ATF. However, the price of petroleum coke declined.

Meanwhile, the all-India consumer price index (CPI) on base 2012=100 stood at 3.77 (provisional) in September 2018 compared to 3.69 (final) in August, 2018 and 3.28 in September, 2017, according to the Central Statistics Office, ministry of statistics and programme implementation. (RKS)
