Notes:
1. The indices measure the average change in Consumer Price over a period of time at each centre and as such these cannot be used for comparison of costliness among different centres.
2. All-India CPI (UNME) on new base 1984-85=100 may be converted to old base 1960=100 by multiplying it with the linking factor 5.32.
