The Wholesale Price Index (WPI) based inflation was at 2.93 per cent in February. It was 2.74 per cent in March 2018.

Inflation in food articles hardened with steep rise in prices of vegetables during March 2019.

Inflation in food articles basket was 5.68 per cent during March.

Inflation in 'Fuel and power' category also spiked to 5.41 per cent, from 2.23 per cent in February.

Retail inflation accelerated to 2.86 per cent in March from 2.57 per cent a month ago, data released last week showed.

For April-September period, the RBI has projected retail inflation at 2.9-3 per cent, mainly due to lower food and fuel prices as well as expectation of a normal monsoon.
