NEW DELHI, Oct 13 (Reuters) - India's annual consumer price
inflation eased to 4.31 percent in September, its
lowest level in 13 months, helped by smaller rises in food
prices, government data showed on Thursday.
Economists surveyed by Reuters had expected annual retail
inflation to come in at 4.80 percent last month, compared with
5.05 percent in August.
Food inflation was 3.88 percent last month, much slower than
5.91 percent recorded in August.
