TABLE-India's WPI inflation hits four-month high in August

    Sept 14 (Reuters) - India's wholesale price inflation             rose to
3.24 percent from a year ago, its fastest pace in four months, driven by higher
prices of food and fuel products, data showed.
    The rise compares with a 3.0 percent increase forecast by economists in a
Reuters poll and a provisional 1.88 percent rise in July.
    Wholesale food prices              in August rose 4.41 percent on year,
compared with a 2.12 percent rise a month earlier, government data showed on
Thursday.
