India's wholesale price index (WPI) rose an annual 8.23% in January on higher food prices, government data showed on Monday.


The figure exceeded the median forecast for an 8.05% rise in a Reuters poll and was lower than the annual rise of 8.43% in December.


The annual reading for November was upwardly revised to 8.08% from 7.48%.

The WPI is more closely watched than the consumer price index (CPI) in India as it covers a higher number of products.
