Chana prices rose 1.01 per cent to Rs 5,000 per quintal in futures trade today on huge bets, supported by soaring demand from dal mills in the spot market amid restricted supplies.
At the National Commodity and Derivatives Exchange, chana for delivery in the current month advanced Rs 50, or 1.01 per cent, to Rs 5,000 per quintal with an open interest of 3,000 lots.
