In restricted activity, gur chakku prices rose by Rs 50 per quintal at the wholesale Jaggery market today on paucity of stocks amid increased demand.

However, gur prices in Muzaffarnagar and Muradnagar held steady in restricted buying activity.

Marketmen said paucity of stocks due to fall in arrivals from producing areas on adverse weather conditions against increased demand mainly led to rise in wholesale gur chakku prices.

At Delhi, gur chakku moved up by Rs 50 to Rs 2800-2900 per quintal.

The following are today's quotations per quintal:

Gur chakku 2,800-2,900, pedi 2,900-3,000, dhayya 3,000-3,100 and shakkar 3,200-3,300.

Muzaffarnagar: Rasket 2,350-2,400, chakku 2,600-2,750 and khurpa 2,600-2650.

Muradnagar: Pedi 2600-2,650 and dhayya 2,650-2700.
