TABLE-India's industrial output unexpectedly contracts in Oct

Dec 9 (Reuters) - India's industrial output 
unexpectedly fell 1.9 percent in October from a year earlier,
driven down by a contraction in manufacturing and mining
sectors, government data showed on Friday.
    Economists surveyed by Reuters had forecast a 1.0 percent
growth in output compared with a 0.7 percent year-on-year rise
in September.
