Downtrend continuing in pulse seeds and pulses for the past few days has once again ended as arrivals are affected due to intense heat wave across the State. On Tuesday, chana (kanta) rose to ₹4,625-50 a quintal, while chana (desi) ruled at ₹4,400, chana (mausmi) ₹4,500-4,800, Kabuli Bitki at ₹4,300-4,400, while Kaktu ruled at ₹4,100 respectively. Lower crop estimate has made stockists withhold chana stocks with them, leading to sharp rise in chana in mandis, said Prakash Vora, a local trader. Chana dal (average) was being quoted at ₹5,400-5,600, chana dal (medium) ₹5,700-5,800, while chana dal (bold) ruled at ₹6,000-6,400. Dollar chana went for ₹5,000-5,200 on subdued demand. In container, however, dollar chana traded higher on improved export demand with dollar chana (42/44 count) at ₹6,200-25; 44/46 count at ₹6,000-25; 58/60 count ₹5,350-75 and 60/62 count ruled at ₹5,259-75.
