Prices of groundnut and mustard oil fell by up to Rs 100 per quintal at the wholesale oils and oilseeds market today owing to slackened demand against adequate stocks position.
However, other edible and non-edible oils moved in a narrow range in limited deals and pegged at the last levels.
Traders said easing demand from retailers against adequate stocks position on increased supplies from producing belts, mainly led to the decline in groundnut and mustard oil prices.
In the national capital, groundnut mill delivery (Gujarat) oil moved down by Rs 100 to Rs 7,900 per quintal.
Mustard expeller (Dadri) oils also shed Rs 50 to Rs 7,900 per quintal.
