India’s annual wholesale price inflation in July eased to 1.08 per cent from a year ago period, government data showed on Wednesday, boosted by a fall in prices of fuel products.

Last month, the wholesale price inflation was below the forecast of 1.93% by economists in a Reuters poll and provisional 2.02% in June.

Wholesale food prices in July rose 4.54% year-on-year, compared with a 5.04% jump a month earlier, the data showed.
