Turmeric and jeera prices fell up to Rs 200 per quintal at the wholesale kirana market in the national capital today on easing demand from retailers and stockists amid sufficient stocks.
Besides, increased arrivals from producing regions also put pressure on the select spice prices.
Turmeric prices drifted lower by Rs 100 to finish at Rs 8,600-11,700 per quintal.
Jeera common and jeera best quality also declined by Rs 200 each to conclude at Rs 19,600-19,800 and Rs 21,500-21,800 per quintal.
