TABLE-India's retail inflation touches 17-month high in Dec

    Jan 12 (Reuters) - India's annual retail inflation
 accelerated in December to a 17-month high of 5.21
percent, government data showed on Friday, mainly driven by
faster rises in prices of food and fuel products.
    Analysts polled by Reuters had forecast December's CPI
inflation to rise to 5.10 percent from November's 4.88 percent.
