New Delhi: Inflation based on wholesale prices rose to a record high of 12.94 per cent in May due to rise in prices of crude oil and manufactured goods. WPI inflation rose sharply in May 2021 due to the lower base effect. WPI inflation in May 2020 was negative 3.37 per cent. Petrol Diesel Price: Petrol reached beyond 100 in these states, know today’s price in your cities

This is the fifth consecutive month that inflation based on the Wholesale Price Index (WPI) has increased. In April 2021, WPI inflation was in double digits to 10.49 percent. “The annual rate of inflation based on monthly WPI has increased to 12.94 per cent in May 2021 (as compared to May, 2020) from negative 3.37 per cent in May 2020,” the commerce ministry said in a statement.

According to the statement, “The higher rate of inflation in May 2021 is mainly due to lower base effect and increase in the prices of petroleum products and manufactured products like petrol, diesel, naphtha, furnace oil etc. as compared to the corresponding month of last year. ”

Inflation in fuel and power rose to 37.61 per cent during the period under review, from 20.94 per cent in April. Inflation in manufactured products stood at 10.83 per cent in May as against 9.01 per cent in the previous month.

Food inflation moderated marginally to 4.31 per cent in May. However, onions became expensive during this period. RBI in its monetary policy earlier this month kept interest rates at a record low and said it was committed to maintain a lenient policy to boost growth.
