    March 14 (Reuters) - India's annual consumer price inflation

food prices, after touching its lowest level in at least five
years in January, government data showed on Tuesday.
    Economists polled by Reuters had expected last month's
annual retail inflation to come in at 3.58 percent, compared
with 3.17 percent in January.

percent in January.
