According to the Ministry of Statistics and Programme Implementation, the overall food inflation, measured on Consumer Food Price Index moved up to 2.36 per cent during July this year which was 2.25 per cent in June 2019.

The rate of price rise in vegetables softened to 2.82 per cent during the latest month as against a rise of 4.66 per cent in June, while prices of pulses and products went up to 6.82 per cent from 5.68 per cent.
