TABLE-India's WPI inflation eases to 2.60 pct y/y in Sept

    Oct 16 (Reuters) - India's annual wholesale price inflation             eased to 2.60
percent in September from the provisional 3.24 percent in the previous month, dragged down by
smaller increases in food prices, data showed on Monday.
    The rise compares with a 3.41 percent increase forecast by economists in a Reuters poll.
    Wholesale food prices in September rose 1.99 percent on the year, compared with a 4.41
percent rise a month earlier, the data showed.
