The index for ‘Manufacture of Wearing Apparel’ sub-group declined by 0.7 per cent to 138.2 from 139.2 for the previous month due to lower price of knitted and crocheted apparel (3 per cent).

On the other hand, the index for ‘Manufacture of Textiles’ sub-group rose by 1.0 per cent to 117.1 from 115.9 for the previous month due to higher price of knitted and crocheted fabrics (2 per cent); synthetic yarn, cotton yarn, viscose yarn, woollen yarn, weaving and finishing of textiles and manufacture of cordage, rope, twine and netting (1 per cent each).

The index for fuel and power (weight 13.15 per cent) also rose by 0.3 per cent to 104.4 from 104.1 for the previous month due to higher price of bitumen, LPG, petroleum coke, kerosene, and furnace oil.
