On a month-on-month basis it fell 0.41 percent in June, the bureau said.

Prices of petrol and tobacco fell in June on a month-on-month basis, while those of food items such as damson, lemons, garlic and mangoes also eased. But the lower prices were offset by a rise in costs of bananas, eggs and tomatoes.
