TABLE-India's retail inflation eases to 2.99 pct in April - govt

    May 12 (Reuters) - India's annual consumer price inflation
             eased to 2.99 percent in April, helped by smaller
rises in food prices, government data showed on Friday.
    Economists polled by Reuters had expected last month's
annual retail inflation to come in at 3.49 percent, compared
with a provisional 3.81 percent in March.
    Food inflation was 0.61 percent last month, lower than 1.93
percent in March.
