The index for ‘Manufacture of Wearing Apparel’ sub-group rose by 0.7 per cent to 139.6 from 138.6 for the previous month due to higher price of knitted and crocheted apparel (2 per cent).

The index for ‘Manufacture of Textiles’ sub-group also rose by 0.1 per cent to 119.0 from 118.9 for the previous month due to higher price of other textiles (2 per cent) and woollen yarn, synthetic yarn, viscose yarn, weaving & finishing of textiles and manufacture of cordage, rope, twine & netting (1 per cent each). However, the price of made-up textile articles, except apparel (3 per cent) declined.

The index for fuel and power (weight 13.15 per cent) was up by 3.6 per cent to 111.1 from 107.2 for the previous month due to higher price of bitumen, furnace oil, naphtha, ATF, LPG, kerosene, HSD, petrol and petroleum coke.
