Rice basmati prices firmed up by Rs 100 per quintal at the wholesale grains market today on increased buying by stockists following pick-up in demand from retailers.
However, other grains held steady in thin trade.
Traders said, increased buying by stockists due to uptick in demand from retailers against restricted supplies from producing regions, mainly led to the rise in rice basmati prices.
In the national capital, rice basmati common and Pusa-1121 variety rose by Rs 100 each to Rs 7,700-7,800 and Rs 6,250-7,700 per quintal, respectively.
