Indian inflation rate falls to 8.5%
India's inflation rate fell in August to its lowest level since January, partly due to changes in the way it is calculated.
India's wholesale-price-index (WPI) inflation slowed to 8.5% last month, down from 9.8% in July, official figures show.
The new index includes a wider range of consumer goods, such as computers, scooters and refrigerators.
Under the old system August's inflation rate would have been 9.5%.
India's has experienced large inflation rises, exceeding 10%, on an annual basis in the five months to June, this year.
The Reserve Bank of India has increased its interest rates four times this year to 5.75%, as it tries to combat rising prices.
Analysts expect the RBI to increase interest rates again when it meets on Thursday.
