June WPI-based inflation cools to 15.18% from record high of 15.88% in May

India’s wholesale price index (WPI)-based inflation eased slightly to 15.18 per cent in June from a three-decade high of 15.88 per cent the previous month, government data showed on Thursday.

June’s figure was lower than the forecast of 15.50 per cent in a Reuters poll of analysts, and compared to 12.07 per cent in June 2021.
Earlier, WPI-based inflation rate shot up to a record high of 15.88 per cent in May in the current 2011-12 series as food prices accelerated while commodity rates hardened further.
