NEW DELHI (Reuters) - India's wholesale prices rose at a slower-than-expected pace in September, gaining 3.57 percent from a year earlier, government data showed on Friday.

The data compared with a 3.89 percent annual rise forecast by economists in a Reuters poll. In August, prices rose a provisional 3.74 percent.

Wholesale food prices last month rose 5.75 percent year-on-year, compared with a provisional 8.23 percent gain in August.
