Prices of groundnut and mustard oils rose by up to Rs 200 per quintal at the wholesale oils and oilseeds market today due to increased offtake by vanaspati millers.
However, castor oil in the non-edible section, eased on sluggish demand from consuming industries.
Traders said increased offtake by vanaspati millers to meet rising festive season demand from retailers amid restricted supplies from producing regions mainly pushed up groundnut and mustard oil prices.
In the national capital, groundnut mill delivery (Gujarat) oil advanced by Rs 200 to Rs 8,600 per quintal.
