Wholesale Price Inflation in India for Jan 2014 came in at a low 5.05%, making everyone wonder what they are smoking. (Beedi’s perhaps, which has seen inflation of just 1.1%). This is the lowest since May 2013.


Component wise, we’re seeing food down to 6%!


The data for Nov 2013 has not changed even after revisions.

It’s a good thing, this report. It’s a tad difficult to believe, but prices at the wholesale level have been falling the last month. Let’s hope it stays that way!

Hi Deepak,

The index numbers seems to be wrong. 168.8 and 179.2 are more than 6% apart. Not 5.05%. Please check.

Thanks for the heads up! Fixed.
