Chana prices went up by 1.50 per cent to Rs 4,038 per quintal in futures market Thursday as traders increased their holdings on account of rising demand at domestic spot market.
Besides, restricted arrivals of the commodity in the physical market influenced the prices.
At the National Commodity and Derivatives Exchange, chana for delivery in October was trading higher by Rs 60, or 1.50 per cent, to Rs 4,038 per quintal with an open interest of 52,890 lots.
