Inflation in Wholesale Price Index (WPI) rises to 7.81% in September from 7.55 per cent in August.

Inflation rose to its highest level this fiscal at 7.81 per cent in September as prices of wheat, cereals and diesel soared, a development that may restrain RBI from cutting interest rates at its monetary policy later this month.

Inflation, as measured by the Wholesale Price Index (WPI), was 7.55 per cent in August.

In September last year, however, it was 10 per cent.
