2 Min Read

    Feb 13 (Reuters) - India's annual consumer price inflation
             eased to 3.17 percent in January, its lowest level
in at least five years, helped by a sharp cooling in food
prices, government data showed on Monday.
    Economists polled by Reuters had expected last month's
annual retail inflation to come in at 3.22 percent, compared
with 3.41 percent in December.
    Food inflation was 0.53 percent last month, lower than 1.37
percent in December.
