Sugar prices at the Vashi market declined by ₹5-8 a quintal on Monday as selling pressure continued. Naka rates were steady. Producers sold the commodity ₹5-7 higher or lower as per quality with routine volume. Freight rates ruled flat after recent rise. Inventory at Vashi remained stable at 105-110 truck loads. As festival demand in bulk and in retail got over, morale was cautious. Stockists preferred to have need-base fresh buys, said sources. Sources said prices at upper level ruled range-bound with thin volatility and ruled weak in Vashi due to need base local demand. Arrivals at Vashi were 61-62 truck loads and local dispatches were at 59- 60 truck loads.
