Rice basmati rises on stockists' buying
Rice basmati prices rose by up to Rs 100 per quintal in lacklustre trade at the wholesale grains market today on increased buying by stockists following pick up in demand against tight supply.
However, other grains held steady in thin trade.
Traders said increased buying by stockists due to uptick in demand against restricted supplies from producing belts mainly led to rise in rice basmati prices.
