On overall basis, the inflation in the food segment increased to 4.42 per cent in November as compared to 1.9 per cent in the preceding month.

Meanwhile. the industrial production growth hit a three-month low of 2.2 per cent in October this year, mainly due to subdued performance of manufacturing and mining sectors coupled with a contraction in output of consumer durables.
