The figure indicates a 6% increase compared with the similar month of the previous year.
The PPI index (using 2011 as the base year) stood at 211.1 during the month, indicating 1% growth compared with the previous month, Mehr News Agency reported on Sunday.
A closer look at the PPI sub-indexes shows that they recorded an increase compared with the previous month, but the ‘agriculture, forestry and fishing’ sub-index dropped by 1.7% compared with a month earlier and the ‘transportation’ sub-index remained unchanged.
