Retail inflation in India rose to 3.65% in February 2017, marginally higher than a month ago, showed data released by the government on Tuesday. Retail inflation has been heading lower and hit a series-low in January. The decline stemmed mainly from the moderation in food inflation, especially in perishables, which were impacted by demonetisation. However, inflation excluding food and fuel has remained sticky.
