Dip in food inflation not much consolation: Pranab

New Delhi: Finance minister Pranab Mukherjee today said dip in food inflation for the week ended 8th January, was not "much consolation" and the government would continue to take steps to tame rising prices, reports PTI.

"Some of the vegetable prices are still high... I do not know what would be the impact of the recent increase (in petrol price) because these figures are two weeks old", he told reporters here.

Although food inflation during the period declined by 1.38 percentage points to 15.52%, vegetable and onion prices continue to remain high.

Moreover, the inflation figures do not capture the impact of the recent increase in petrol prices by Rs2.50 per litre.

"But the fact of the matter is (that) from 16.91% it (food inflation) has come down to 15.52%...it is not much consolation but declining trend is there," the minister said.

"We shall have to watch the situation. All necessary, effective steps are being taken including improving of supply management," he added.

On an annual basis, prices of pulses for the week ended 8th January have declined by 14.92%, followed by wheat (6.11%) and potato (2.91%).

Vegetable prices, however, are still up; they are 65.39% more expensive in comparison to the year-ago period.


How to change your operator through mobile number portability

The process is quite simple. It just involves sending an SMS, and submitting an application form

Here is the procedure and the guidelines for changing your operator, if you so wish: 

The procedure.. 
1. Send an SMS to 1900 in the following format:
PORT <Your Mobile Number>
e.g. PORT 9123456789      
(Note: 'PORT' is not case sensitive and keep space between port and your number).
2. You will receive a reply which will contain a unique 'porting code'.
3. Send this unique code to the mobile operator that you have selected, through an SMS. The number to which you have to send your text message can be obtained from an operator's website or, of course, from the ad blitz that will start soon.
Remember, again, this unique code is valid only for a few days (say, 15 to 30 days). You will have to send this SMS to your new operator at the earliest. Else, you will have to repeat the procedure described in point (1) above all over again.
4. Your existing operator will communicate with the new operator after checking if you have any outstanding amount. If your account has a clear balance, the existing operator will go ahead with the approval for the number porting.
5. The subscriber would also have to fill and submit the prescribed form for MNP to the new operator. The subscriber would have to submit documents (like photo ID and address proof) along with the MNP form to the new operator. Post-paid subscribers will have to submit a copy of their latest bill as well.
6. You will receive an SMS, which will provide the time and date for porting. According to TRAI, it is mandatory for both the existing and the fresh operators to complete the process for number portability within four days after the first SMS.
7. You will receive another SMS from the new operator, confirming the switch. Your mobile phone may remain 'dead' or without network coverage for about two hours while the porting takes place. But don't worry—you will be able to go 'live' again with the new operator—and your old number.
8. Remember, you can change your operator only once in every 90 days.
