The index for ‘Manufacture of Wearing Apparel’ sub-group declined by 1.3 per cent to 139.2 from 141.0 for the previous month due to lower price of woven apparel, except fur apparel (2 per cent).

On the other hand, the index for ‘Manufacture of Textiles’ sub-group rose by 0.3 per cent to 115.9 from 115.5 for the previous month due to higher price of other textiles (2 per cent); synthetic yarn, cotton yarn, viscose yarn, made-up textile articles (except apparel), and knitted and crocheted fabrics (1 per cent each). However, the price of woollen yarn (1 per cent) declined.
