The index for ‘Manufacture of Wearing Apparel’ sub-group declined by 0.7 per cent to 139.2 from 140.2 for the previous month due to lower price of knitted and crocheted apparel (2 per cent). The index for ‘Manufacture of Textiles’ sub-group rose by 0.2 per cent to 119.0 from 118.8 for the previous month due to higher price of weaving and finishing of textiles (1 per cent).

The index for primary articles (weight 22.62 per cent) declined by 0.2 per cent to 134.2 from 134.5 for the previous month. The index for fuel and power (weight 13.15 per cent) rose by 1.7 per cent to 101.0 from 99.3 for the previous month due to higher price of furnace oil, naphtha, HSD, petroleum coke, petrol and kerosene.
