TABLE-India's retail inflation cools to two-year low in November

NEW DELHI, Dec 13 (Reuters) - India's annual consumer price
inflation eased to 3.63 percent in November, its
lowest level in two years, helped by a sharp cooling in food
prices, government data showed on Tuesday.
    Economists surveyed by Reuters had expected annual retail
inflation to come in at 3.90 percent last month, compared with
4.20 percent in October.
    Food inflation was 2.11 percent last month, lower than 3.32
percent recorded in October.
