In restricted activity, moth prices firmed by Rs 200 per quintal on the wholesale pulses market on Saturday on selective buying by retailers.

However, other pulses moved in a narrow range on alternate bouts of trading and settled around previous levels. Marketmen said selective buying by retailers helped moth prices to strengthen.
