Producer Price Indices in March 2007

Producer prices for manufactured goods rose by 4.1 per cent, export prices by 3.4 per cent and import prices by 3.1 per cent from March 2006 to March 2007. The basic price index for domestic supply went up by 4.7 per cent in the year. The year-on-year change in the wholesale price index amounted to 4.3 per cent.

Producer prices for manufactured goods were pushed up especially by increases in the prices of copper, nickel and electricity from previous year's March. The rise in the prices was curbed by falls in the prices of oil products and electrical products.

From February to March, producer prices for manufactured goods went up by 0.4 per cent, mainly due to increases in the prices of copper, nickel and oil products. The rise in the prices was held back by falls in the price of electricity.
