CARE Ratings Research Report

India's wholesale price inflation in April 2021 has scaled up to 10.5% compared with 7.4% in March 2021 and down 1.6% in April 2020.

This growth in WPI inflation has been the highest since 2012.

We had estimated WPI at 8.3% for the month.

The record WPI inflation during the month can be ascribed to rising fuel and power prices which have shot up to a 49 month high, persistent inflationary pressures in the manufacturing segment and a low base effect.
