India's June retail inflation picks up to 6.09% y/y- govt

NEW DELHI, July 13 (Reuters) - India’s annual retail inflation rose to 6.09% in June compared with 5.84% in March, pushed by a bigger increase in prices of some food items, government data showed on Monday.

The government had suspended the release of inflation headline numbers for April and May due to inadequate data collection during two-months long lockdown.

June inflation was higher than the 5.30% forecast in a Reuters poll of analysts.
