The index for ‘Manufacture of Wearing Apparel’ sub-group rose by 0.7 per cent to 139.1 from 138.2 for the previous month due to higher price of knitted and crocheted apparel (1 per cent).

The index for ‘Manufacture of Textiles’ sub-group also rose by 0.4 per cent to 117.6 from 117.1 for the previous month due to higher price of made-up textile articles, except apparel (2 per cent); and synthetic yarn, texturised & twisted yarn, manufacture of knitted & crocheted fabrics and cotton yarn (1 per cent each). However, the price of manufacture of other textiles (1 per cent) declined.

The index for primary articles (weight 22.62 per cent) rose by 0.1 per cent to 135.1 from 134.9 for the previous month. The index for fuel and power (weight 13.15 per cent) also rose by 0.5 per cent to 104.9 from 104.4 for the previous month due to higher price of LPG, petroleum coke, kerosene, ATF, naphtha and bitumen.
