MUMBAI (Reuters) - India's core wholesale price index (WPI) was estimated to have risen by 1.9 percent in August, according to a Reuters snap survey of three analysts and traders.
Core WPI was between 2.3-2.4 percent in July from a year earlier.
India's headline inflation rose at the fastest pace for six months in August, driven by an 18 percent jump in food prices, a reminder of the economic pressures that new Reserve Bank of India governor Raghuram Rajan faces ahead of his first policy meeting this week.
