TABLE-India's wholesale prices rise 6.55 pct y/y in Feb

    March 14 (Reuters) - India's wholesale prices rose a
more-than-expected 6.55 percent year-on-year in February,
compared with a 0.85 percent fall a year ago, driven by fuel and
food prices, government data showed on Tuesday.
    The data compares with a 5.90 percent annual rise forecast
by economists in a Reuters poll. In January, prices rose a
provisional 5.25 percent, the fastest pace in two-and-a-half
years.
    Last month, wholesale food prices rose 2.69 percent
year-on-year, compared with a provisional 0.56 percent fall in
January.
