The WPI captures the average movement of wholesale prices of goods and is primarily used as a GDP deflator. It reckons only basic prices and does not include taxes, rebate/trade discounts, transport, and other charges.

Last week, data released by the Ministry of Statistics & Programme Implementation (MoSPI) showed retail inflation had dipped to a five-month low of 6.71% in July providing much-needed respite to policy-makers who have been concerned about a spike in prices, especially in food and fuel.
