QuantEco Research || TRUCE Index - Consumption consolidates in Apr-23

Urban consumption index rose marginally by 0.1 to 0.68 in Apr-23 to mark the highest level for the time series beginning Apr-18 onwards. At a granular level, while Petrol consumption eased, it was more than offset by sales of Passenger vehicles soaring to a record high along with moderation in urban CPI inflation. Rural consumption index too increased by 0.1 to 0.57 in Apr-23 i.e., the highest level in 5 months. An uptick in production of Consumer Non-durables, improved offtake of rural credit and softening in rural CPI inflation, more than compensated for the seasonal decline in fertilizer sales and agri exports.
