Adequate stocks in the spot market following increased arrivals from southern producing regions also fuelled the downtrend in prices.

Similarly, the spice for delivery in February contract declined by Rs 8.90 or 0.72 per cent to Rs 1,221 a kg, with an open interest of one lot.

Market analysts said continued profit booking by speculators, subdued demand in the spot market led to the decline in prices at futures trade.
