In the markets regularly monitored by MoAC and WFP, most food prices are relatively stable with normal fluctuations over the past one month. In November 2011, the national average price of coarse rice increased by 2.3 percent to Rs.35.3 per kilo, while that of wheat flour went down by 1.2 percent to Rs. 34.6 per kilo compared to October 2011. Likewise, the price of black gram climbed by a nominal 0.3 percent to Rs. 108.4 per kilo, but that of broken lentil declined by 1.0 percent to Rs. 90.1 per kilo during the same period. The average price of soyabean oil went up by 3.3 percent to Rs. 122.0 per liter. The highest increase in price is observed in potato which has increased by 16.0 percent to Rs. 35.2 per kilo compared to last month. In comparison to August 2011, most food prices showed a declining trend (except potato), while compared to November 2010, food price fluctuations were within the normal range (less than 10 percent). Prices of food commodities exhibit a mixed trend in various markets. For instance, price of coarse rice increased by more than 5 percent in the major consumer and mountain & hill markets with road access, while in Terai markets, price decreased by 2.1 percent over the past one month. The price of wheat flour declined by less than 1.5 percent in the major consumer and the Terai markets, but climbed by 1.5 percent in the mountain & hill markets with road access. In the five large wholesale markets (Birtamod, Kathmandu, Butwal, Surkhet and Dhangadi) monitored by FNCCI/AEC, average prices of coarse rice and black gram declined by 2.7 percent and by 1.0 percent respectively, while that of edible oils increased by a nominal 0.7 percent in the past one month. As per the report released by Nepal Rastra Bank on mid-October 2011, the year-on-year (y-o-y) inflation as measured by consumer price index remained stable at 8.9 percent same as last year. The index of food & beverage increased by 9.6 percent, while that of cereal grains increased marginally by 1.8 percent compared to an 17.1 percent increase in the same period last year. However, the price index of transport climbed by 13.3 percent compared to 8.2 percent in the same period last year.
