Rice prices of both aromatic and non-basmati varieties remained flat amid tepid trading in the market.

Traders are not getting fresh orders and the situation may remain steady till the end of this week, said Mr Amit Chandna, proprietor of Hanuman Rice Trading Company. “We are expecting some movement in the first week of the April month,” he added. Mr Chandna said ending of the financial-year is the prime reason behind the low trading.
