Producer Price Indices in November 2008

Producer prices for manufactured products rose by 2.1 per cent, while export prices fell by 1.9 per cent and import prices by 4.1 per cent from November 2007 to November 2008. The basic price index for domestic supply went up by 1.8 per cent in the year. The year-on-year change in the wholesale price index was 1.2 per cent.

The rise in the producer prices for manufactured products was particularly caused by increased prices of electricity from November 2007. The rise in the prices was curbed by falls in the prices of non-ferrous metals and oil products.

From October to November, producer prices for manufactured goods fell by 1.4 per cent. The fall in the prices was especially due to reductions in the prices of oil products.
