Zinc prices fell 0.28 per cent to Rs 198.05 per kg in futures market Tuesday after speculators trimmed positions amid subdued demand at the domestic spot market.
At the Multi Commodity Exchange, zinc for delivery in March drifted down by 55 paise, or 0.28 per cent, to Rs 198.05 per kg in a business turnover of 851 lots.
