The Central Statistical Bureau of the (Economic Statistics Department) has constructed the price indices for October 2013, based on the year 2007 = 100, by using the new relative weights for the basket of consumer goods derived from the 2007 household income and expenditure survey. These weights were used to revise the CPI (based on year 2007 = 100 as a base year) and construct price indices for next years).
