New Delhi, Apr 12 (PTI) Coriander and jeera prices rose by Rs 100 per quintal at the wholesale kirana market in the national capital today largely on the back of a pick-up in demand from stockists and overseas enquiries amid restricted arrivals from growing regions.
Coriander prices rose by Rs 100 to settle at Rs 6,000-12,300 per quintal.
Jeera common and jeera best quality also increased by Rs 100 each to conclude at Rs 16,500-16,700 and Rs 18,700-19,200 per quintal.
Traders said apart from buying support from retailers and stockists, rising export demand, mainly pushed up coriander and jeera prices.
