TABLE-India's retail inflation cools to 3.41 pct in Dec

Jan 13 (Reuters) - India's annual consumer price inflation
 eased to 3.41 percent in December, its lowest level
in more than two years, helped by a sharp cooling in food
prices, government data showed on Thursday.
    Economists surveyed by Reuters had expected annual retail
inflation to come in at 3.57 percent last month, compared with
3.63 percent in November.
    Food inflation was 1.37 percent last month, lower than a
revised 2.03 percent in November.
