The index for ‘Manufacture of Wearing Apparel’ sub-group rose by 0.4 per cent to 138.9 from 138.4 for the previous month due to higher price of manufacture of woven apparel, except fur apparel (1 per cent).
The index for ‘Manufacture of Textiles’ sub-group, on the other hand, declined by 0.5 per cent to 117.1 from 117.7 for the previous month due to lower price of synthetic yarn, and texturised and twisted yarn (2 per cent each) and viscose yarn and cotton yarn (1 per cent each). However, the price of cordage, rope, twine and netting (2 per cent) moved up.
The index for primary articles (weight 22.62 per cent) rose by 0.9 per cent to 147.3 from 146.0 for the previous month. The index for fuel and power (weight 13.15 per cent), however, declined by 0.8 per cent to 101.3 from 102.1 for the previous month due to lower price of furnace oil, ATF, HSD and bitumen.
