Chilli and jeera prices rose by Rs 100 per quintal at the wholesale kirana market in the national capital today largely on the back of pick-up in demand from retailers and overseas amid restricted arrivals from growing regions.
Chilli prices rose by Rs 100 to settle at Rs 5,000-11,500 per quintal.
Jeera common and jeera best quality also increased by Rs 100 each to conclude at Rs 19,700-19,800 and Rs 21,600-22,000 per quintal, respectively.
Traders said apart from buying support from retailers and stockists, rising export demand, mainly pushed up chilli and jeera prices.
