Consumer Price Index Numbers for Rural, Urban and Combined (Base 2010=100)
GOVERNMENT OF INDIA

 

The Central Statistics Office (CSO), Ministry of Statistics and Programme Implementation has introduced a new series of Consumer Price Indices for all-India and States/UTs separately for rural, urban and combined for the purpose of intra temporal price comparison with effect from January, 2011 with 2010 as the base year. Provisional indices for the month of January, 2011 are being released with this note for all-India and for States/UTs. Indices for some States/UTs are not being released since adequate number of schedules for these States/UTs could not be received. These indices will be revised at the time of release of provisional indices for the month of March 2011. Therefore, for a period of one year this practice will be continued till the series gets stabilized and adequate timely receipt of price data is achieved. Since these indices are being introduced for the first time, annual inflation rates have not been compiled.

All India indices

All India provisional General, Group and Sub- Group level CPI of January, 2011 for rural, urban and combined (rural+urban) are given in Annex I. The General Indices for rural, urban and combined are 107, 104 and 106 respectively.

State/UT indices

State/UT wise General and Group level provisional Consumer Price Indices for rural, urban and combined (rural+ urban) are at Annex II, III and IV respectively.
