Food inflation dips marginally to 16.24%

New Delhi: Food inflation fell marginally to 16.24% for the week ended 25th September, on slight easing of supply side pressures, even as prices of cereals, fruits, select vegetables and milk remained high.

After rising for the fifth straight week, food inflation declined by 20 percentage points during the week.

The inflation figures were at 16.44% for the week ended 18th September.

Food inflation, which had moderated in July, has remained high since mid August due to supply disruptions, caused by heavy monsoon.

As per the latest figures, the inflation was driven mainly by higher prices of pulses, rice and wheat. Official data released here showed that on an annual basis, cereals prices have risen by 5.26%.

While prices of pulses rose by 4.44% on a yearly basis, wheat and rice became costlier by 6.49% and 3.86%, respectively.

Among other food items, milk prices soared by 24.88% during the week compared to the same period last year, while fruit rates rose by 15.65%.
