Chana prices rose 1.43 per cent to Rs 5,155 per quintal in futures trade today as traders created more positions, supported by the soaring demand from dal mills in the spot market amid restricted supplies.

Similarly, the commodity for delivery in September edged higher by Rs 73, or 1.41 per cent, to Rs 5,230 per quintal in 17,550 lots.
