TABLE-Sri Lanka national consumer prices rise 4.1 pct y/y in Nov

COLOMBO, Dec 21 (Reuters) - Sri Lanka's rate of inflation,
as measured by the National Consumer Price Index (NCPI), rose
4.1 percent in November from a year earlier, edging down from
the previous month's 5.0 percent, the Department of Census and
Statistics said on Wednesday.
    The NCPI in November edged up 1.7 percent on a
month-on-month basis, compared with a 1.1 percent rise in
October. 
    The 12-month moving average inflation, for which data is
available since December 2015, was steady at an all-time high of
4.0 percent in November, the same as in October.
