Which item has the highest weighting in Wholesale Price Index?

A. Fuel and Power
B. Primary Articles
C. Manufactured Goods
D. Services

Answer & Solution
Option: C
Explanation :The Wholesale Price Index (WPI) is the price of a representative basket of wholesale goods. Some countries (like the Philippines) use WPI changes as a central measure of inflation. But now India has adopted new CPI to measure inflation. However, United States now report a producer price index instead.
It also influences stock and fixed price markets. The WPI is published by the Economic Adviser in the Ministry of Commerce and Industry.The Wholesale Price Index focuses on the price of goods traded between corporations, rather than goods bought by consumers, which is measured by the Consumer Price Index. The purpose of the WPI is to monitor price movements that reflect supply and demand in industry, manufacturing and construction. This helps in analyzing both macroeconomic and microeconomic conditions.
