NEW DELHI: Wholesale price index (WPI) based inflation jumped to a new high of 15. 1% in April, according to data released by the Department for Promotion of Industry and Internal Trade.
The high rate of inflation in April 2022 was due to the rise in prices of mineral oils, basic metals, crude petroleum and natural gas, food articles, nonfood articles, food products and chemicals & chemical products, against a year ago, according to an official statement. The rate of inflation based on the WPI Food Index increased marginally from 8. 7% in March to 8. 9% in April.
The latest numbers come close on the heels of retail inflation rising to a near-eight year high of 7. 8% in April due to surging prices of food and fuel.
