TABLE-India's wholesale prices rise 5.70 pct y/y in March

    April 17 (Reuters) - India's wholesale prices            
rose a lower-than-expected 5.70 percent year-on-year in March,
compared with a 0.45 percent fall a year ago, dragged down by
easing fuel prices, government data showed on Monday.
    The data compares with a 5.98 percent annual rise forecast
by economists in a Reuters poll. In February, prices rose a
provisional 6.55 percent, the fastest pace in two-and-a-half
years.
    Last month, wholesale food prices rose 3.12 percent
year-on-year, compared with a provisional 2.69 percent rise in
February, the data showed.
