The Department of Census and Statistics said Sri Lanka's inflation in October 2015 determined under a new National Consumer Price Index rose to 3.0 %.

The inflation, as measured by the change in the Colombo Consumers' Price Index, rose to 1.7% in October.

Since the CCPI, prepared by the Department of Census and Statistics for the calculation of changes in the price level and inflation, only depicts the price changes in Colombo municipal area, the Department last month decided to introduce the National Consumer Price Index.
