Monday, TD Securities and the Melbourne Institute said their monthly index that measures inflation in Australia fell 0.1% in March from the previous month, following a 0.7% rise in February. Inflationary pressures eased mainly due to the fall in prices of fuel, tobacco, housing rents and dairy products.

Meanwhile, the inflation gauge rose 2.6% on a yearly basis in March compared to 3.1% in February.
