India's annual consumer price inflation remained unchanged in May at 10.36%, government said in a statement on Monday.
In April, consumer prices provisionally rose 10.36%.
Consumer price-based food inflation, however, accelerated to 10.66 percent in May from 10.18% in April.
Inflation as measured by India's benchmark wholesale price index accelerated to 7.55% in the year to May, driven by double-digit rises in food and fuel prices.
