Urad and its dal prices rose by up to Rs 200 per quintal at the wholesale pulses market today following selective buying coupled with restricted supplies from producing regions.
However, other pulses moved in a narrow range in scattered deals and settled around the previous levels.
Traders said selective buying by retailers against restricted arrivals from producing belts mainly led to the rise in urad and its dal prices.
In the national capital, urad edged up to Rs 4,100-5,850 from previous level of Rs 4,000-5,650 per quintal. Its dal chilka (local),best quality and dhoya were also up by Rs 200 each to Rs 5,300-5,400, Rs 5,400-5,900 and Rs 5,800-6,000 per quintal, respectively.
