CPI inflation quickens to 9.84 per cent in Sept: Govt
Oct 14 2013 , New Delhi
A Reuters poll published last week had forecast consumer inflation accelerating to 9.60 percent in September.
Food prices for consumers last month rose 11.44 percent from a year earlier, faster than August's 11.06 percent rise.
Higher food prices, unexpectedly, drove up the wholesale price index (WPI) -- India's main inflation measure -- to a seven-month high of 6.46 percent in September, government data showed earlier on Monday.
