India's wholesale prices fall 2.4% y-o-y in June: govt
[NEW DELHI] India's wholesale prices fell at a faster-than-expected annual rate of 2.4 per cent in June, their eighth straight decline, mainly on the back of weak fuel prices, government data showed on Tuesday.
The data compared with a 2.2 per cent year-on-year fall forecast by economists in a Reuters poll and a provisional 2.36 per cent annual decline in May.
The wholesale food index rose 2.88 percent year-on-year, while fuel prices fell 10.03 per cent from a year ago.
