The price rise in the food basket was recorded at 5.11 per cent in September, as against 2.99 per cent in the preceding month, data from the Ministry of Statistics and Programme Implementation (MoSPI) showed.

However, the headline inflation still remained within the comfort zone of the Reserve Bank of India, which mainly factors in CPI while arriving at its bi-monthly monetary policy.
