WPI inflation edges down to 2.47 percent in March

Reuters  |  NEW DELHI 

(Reuters) - India's annual wholesale price slightly eased in March, helped by a fall in food prices, government data showed on Monday.

Annual wholesale price last month eased to 2.47 percent from a year earlier, a shade lower than a provisional 2.48 percent rise in February, and below a 2.58 percent increase forecast by economists in a poll.

Wholesale in March fell 0.07 percent year-on-year, compared with a 0.07 percent rise a month earlier, data showed.
