In February 2016, retail prices of most food commodities monitored in 12 markets across Nepal showed a downward trend due to several factors: normalization of cross-border trade in the Terai, mainly through Birgunj-Raxaul, improved food supplies with increased availability of fuel and transportation and better road access.
Overall inflation rate in February 2016 was 11.3 percent. The food and beverage group was higher at 12.8 percent, as were several sub-groups: pulses and legumes (39.7 percent), ghee and oil (23.1 percent), meat and fish (12.6 percent) and cereal grains (11.7 percent).
