Gur prices held steady in thin trade


NEW DELHI, Dec 9: There was no change in the pattern of trading at the wholesale gur (jaggery) market in the national capital as prices continued to be asked on previous closing levels in the absence of necessary buying support.

            Marketmen said sporadic buying against adequate stocks mainly kept gur prices steady at overnight levels.

            Following are today’s rates (in Rs per quintal):

            Gur chakku Rs 2,900-3,000, pedi Rs 3,000-3,100, dhayya Rs 3,200-3,300 and shakkar Rs 3,300-3,400.
