The February consumer price index (CPI) rose to 5.37 percent versus 5.11 percent in the previous month mainly due to a spike in food inflation (6.7 percent). However, the industry output data (IIP) for January came in at 2.6 percent, higher than the CNBC-TV18 poll estimates of 0.47 percent.

Speaking to CNBC-TV18, CFO Rajesh Kumar Mohta says the weekday spending from corporates has been quite sluggish and despite a fall in food inflation, momentum on ground is yet to pick up.
