All-India Consumer Price Index for Agricultural Labourers at 7% in May

| @indiablooms | 21 Jun 2024, 06:10 pm

New Delhi: The All-India Consumer Price Index for Agricultural Labourers (CPI-AL) and Rural Labourers (CPI-RL) (Base: 1986-87=100) saw an increase of 6 points each in May 2024, reaching 1269 and 1281, respectively.

This rise was driven by higher prices of vegetables, pulses, wheat (atta), onion, milk, turmeric whole, ginger, fresh fish, jowar, pan leaf, medicines, shirting cloth (C.M.), saree (C.M.), leather chappals, among other items.

The point-on-point inflation rate for CPI-AL was 7.00% in May 2024, slightly down from 7.03% in April 2024.

In contrast, CPI-RL inflation was 7.02% in May 2024, up marginally from 6.96% in April 2024.

For comparison, the rates in May 2023 were 5.99% for CPI-AL and 5.84% for CPI-RL.
