Retail inflation drops for the first time below the 6% barrier in 2022

Retail inflation in India dropped below 6% in November for the first time this year, slowing to 5.88% from 6.77% in October, with consumer-experienced food price inflation falling to 4.67% from over 7% in October. However, rural retail inflation remained strong at 6.09%.

India’s industrial output fell sharply by 4% in October, the second time in three months that levels have decreased year-over-year. A major 5.6% decline in manufacturing output and little growth in energy generation were the main drivers of this decline. According to updated data, industrial output increased by about 3.5% in September.

Manufacturing output fell to its lowest level since June 2021, while the Index of Industrial Production (IIP) fell to 129.6 in October, its lowest level since September 2021.
