WEST BENGAL- Upsurge in Mass Lynchings

In November 1985, the general index, exhibiting seasonal behaviour, fell by 1.1 per cent, bringing the inflation rate during current fiscal year so far to 3.1 per cent as compared with 5.4 per cent during April- November 1984, Incidentally, the current inflation rate is the lowest during the last seven years. On the basis of the underlying trend and the likely behaviour of prices in the rest of the year, the rise in prices during the fiscal year 1985-86 could be perceptibly lower than the previous year's inflation rate of 7 per cent, unless there is any mark up in the administered prices. This deceleration does not however signify much to the consumers, for most of the essential commodities continue to show unabated rise in prices.
