2 Min Read

Oct 13 (Reuters) - India's annual consumer price inflation
 eased to 4.31 percent in September, its lowest
level in 13 months, helped by smaller rises in food prices,
government data showed on Thursday.
    Economists surveyed by Reuters had expected annual retail
inflation to come in at 4.80 percent last month, compared with
5.05 percent in August.
    Food inflation was 3.88 percent last month, much slower than
5.91 percent recorded in August.
