Retail prices of food commodities monitored in various markets have increased over the past one month which is a result of prolonged bandhs (general strikes) across the country in May 2012.
The year-on-year (y-o-y) inflation released by Nepal Rastra Bank remained at 7.5 percent in April 2012. The price index of food & beverage increased only by 4.6 percent compared to 17.3 percent in the same period last year.
A series of bandhs called by various organizations in May 2012 disrupted transport and market operation that caused shortage of foods and essential items, particularly in the hill and mountain markets.
