Prices of select edible oil rose at the wholesale oils and oilseeds market during the week on pick up in demand from vanaspati units as well as retailers.
However, groundnut oil finished lower on reduced offtake.
Castor oil, in the non-edible section, edged up on uptick in demand from consuming industries.
Market remained closed on Tuesday on account of Independence Day.
Traders said besides pick up in demand from vanaspati millers and retailers, fall in supplies from producing regions, mainly led to the rise in select edible oil prices.
