Red chillies down on fall in demand

Press Trust of India  |  New Delhi 

In restricted activity, red chilli dropped by Rs 200 per quintal at the kirana market in the national capital today on fall in demand against adequate stocks position. However, other spices traded in a narrow range in limited deals and pegged at last levels.
