Inflation falls further more at 8%. Reutres Poll expected the same numbers.
Continuing its southward journey, the headline inflation fell further to 8 per cent during the week ended November 29 from 8.4 per cent a week earlier.
This is the slowest rise since mid-April when inflation was at 7.95 per cent. Inflation had surged into double digits in early June after an increase in state-set retail fuel prices, and peaked at 12.91 per cent on August 2, the highest reading since annual numbers in the current data series became available in April 1995.
