A Comment on Small savings rate cut and relating it with inflation

My Comment on an article " Small savings rate cut: Who gains, who loses" published in the economictimes.com Dated 29/03/2016 at 3:30 pm.

"I wonder how do you say the inflation rate has fallen in recent periods, whereas the most essential commodities like rice and pulses are skyrocketing. 

The basic food we eat in India is rice which is at Rs.50 per kg. or even more. The toor dal is at Rs. 240 per kg. Other essential items which are required for good nutrition are also very high priced. 

So, how is it possible that inflation can be low? Isn't it like baffling the public by showing a mirage and telling them "there it is the water pond; go and quench your thirst"".
