    COLOMBO, March 21 (Reuters) - Sri Lanka's consumer prices in
February rose at a record pace of 8.2 percent from a year
earlier, accelerating from the previous month's 6.5 percent, the
Department of Census and Statistics said on Tuesday.
    The National Consumer Price Index (NCPI) in February rose
0.5 percent on a month-on-month basis, slowing from 1.1 percent
rise in January. 
    The 12-month moving average inflation, for which data is
available since December 2015, jumped to an all-time high of 5.1
percent in February, compared with 4.6 percent a month ago.
