Market Watch 13

Supply constraints remained a serious concern for rural markets this month. Many rural markets are now experiencing critical food shortages for the second month in a row due to bandhs and fuel shortages.

At a national level, the price of most staple food commodities remained high during April, but were generally stable compared to the previous month.

Food price inflation is still of key concern. The year-on-year inflation figures for March, saw a 53 percent rise in the price of sugar and a 24.6 percent rise in the price of vegetables.
