India's wholesale price inflation stood at 3.18% for the month of April 2018, corresponding to the same month in the preceding year, the Ministry of Commerce and Industry said on Monday.

The National Bureau of Statistics is expected to release Consumer Price Index (CPI) data for April 2018 this week ahead of the Central Bank of Nigeria monetary policy committee meeting slated for May 21 and 22, 2018. The CSO data further revealed that inflation in the fuel and light segment also came in lower at 5.24% month-on-month basis.

The index for Manufacture of Motor Vehicles, Trailers and Semi-Trailers group rose by 0.2 per cent to 111.2 from 111.0 for the previous month due to higher price of release valve (3 per cent), crankshaft (2 per cent) and cylinder liners, ignition device, wheels/wheels & parts, shafts of all kinds, chassis of different vehicle types and passenger vehicles (1 per cent each).

Fuel inflation, which has seen an uptick since July, grew at 5.24 percent in April as compared to 5.7 percent last month.

Reversing the declining trend, retail inflation moved up to 4.58% in April due to hardening in prices of cereals, meat, fish and fruits.
