With some buying in the market, prices of aromatic and non-basmati rice increased by Rs 30-100 a quintal on Wednesday.

Fresh buying and trade inquires led the market upwards, said Mr Praveen Kumar, a rice miller. The price rise was anticipated and the market may continue to see the uptrend, he added.
