Chana prices rose by 0.73 per cent to Rs 4,225 per quintal in futures trade today as traders enlarged their holdings on account of the rising demand in the spot market.
Besides, the restricted arrivals of the commodity in the physical market also influenced the chana prices.

Likewise, the commodity for delivery this month gained Rs 26, or 0.62 per cent, to Rs 4,180 per quintal in 24,340 lots.
Traders said speculators increasing their holdings on hopes of a rise in spot market demand, mainly pushed up chana prices.
