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. (Reporting by Rajesh Kumar Singh; Editing by Malini Menon)
