The centre added that average consumer prices from September 2010 to last month grew by 1 percent, whereas they rose by 0.4 percent from August 2011 to September 2011.

It also said that consumer prices for national households went up by 2.2 percent in the January- September period, whereas consumer prices for non-national households increased 1.9 percent and those for collective households grew 3.8 percent.
