Headline inflation rose marginally by 0.11 per cent in December, breaking the six-month’s declining trend, as food articles including pulses, vegetables and fruits became dearer. Inflation, based on wholesale price index (WPI), was unchanged in November.

According to the WPI data released by the ministry of commerce and industry, the build up inflation rate during the April-December period was -0.28 per cent compared to 5.58 per cent during the same period in 2013-14.

With the WPI and CPI, data for which was released last week, remaining benign, industry hopes that the RBI may soften its policy stance in the forthcoming monetary policy review in February.
