India Inflation Rate Notes

In 2013, the consumer price index replaced the wholesale price index (WPI) as a main measure of inflation. In India, the most important category in the consumer price index is Food and beverages (45.86 percent of total weight). Housing accounts for 10 percent; Transport and communication for 8.6 percent; Fuel and light for 6.84 percent; Clothing and footwear for 6.5 percent; Medical care for 5.9 percent and education for 4.5 percent. Consumer price changes in India can be very volatile due to dependence on energy imports, the uncertain impact of monsoon rains on its large farm sector, difficulties transporting food items to market because of its poor roads and infrastructure and high fiscal deficit.
