Retail inflation for July 2020 rose to a 4-month high of 6.9%

The noteworthy increase in inflation has been on account of elevated prices in food, pan, tobacco and miscellaneous segments. Core inflation also scaled a 21-month high at 5.9 per cent for July 2020 and this is the fourth consecutive month of pick-up. Rural inflation at 7 per cent has marginally outpaced inflation in the urban regions (6.8 per cent) in July.
