India's retail inflation fell to 4.4 percent in February as prices of vegetables and other food and beverages softened, data released by Central Statistics Office on Monday showed.
Industrial production grew at a high rate of 7.5 percent in January 2018 against 3.5 percent in the year-ago month on the back of good show by manufacturing coupled with higher offtake of consumer and capital goods.
In line with the recent trend of recovery in manufacturing, the sector, which constitutes 77.63 per cent of the index, grew by 8.7 per cent during January, as compared to 2.5 per cent in the same month previous year.
Besides, he said, even though the consumer inflation at 4.4 percent in February may be lower, the undercurrent remains biased on the upside, "making RBI disinclined towards any rate cut, though the industry would like it to happen". "Domestic pump prices of petrol and diesel rose sharply in January, reflecting lagged pass-through of the past increases in worldwide crude oil prices".
Stewart Mackertich expected CPI for February 2018 month to come in at 4.74%. The consumer durables sector saw growth accelerating sharply to 8% from 0.86% over the same period.

Within the miscellaneous items, the inflation for transport and communication 2.39% and health 4.95%, while it has eased for personal care and effects to 4.24%, education 4.05%, household goods and services 4.16% and recreation and amusement 4.25% in February 2018.
Food price inflation was at 4.7% in January. However, the inflation moved up for pulses and products (-) 17.35% and spices (-) 1.01% in February 2018.
