Press Trust of India  |  New Delhi

Similarly, the metal for delivery in December traded higher by Rs 1.95, or 1.01 per cent, to Rs 194.70 per kg in 111 lots.

Globally, zinc for delivery in three months rose 2.9 per cent to settle at USD 2,900 per tonne on the Metal Exchange, after touching USD 2,985, the highest since October 2007.

Besides, pick up in demand from consuming industries in the domestic spot market too supported the upside in the metal prices, they said.
