Spot price, however, remained almost stable. NCDEX, jeera August contracts were down ₹35 to ₹11,410 a quintal with an open interest of 6,003 lots. NCDEX September contracts lost ₹45 to ₹11,675 with an open interest of 3,435 lots. About 7,000 bags of jeera arrived at Unjha mandi of Gujarat and went for ₹1,900-2,225 for a maund of 20 kg.
