Indore, Aug 9

Chana (gram) ruled firm on Monday due to poor stock but lack of buying capped any major gains.

Nevertheless, traders said that chana prices will witness an uptrend, primarily because of lower production this year due to a substantial decline in pulses crop coverage .

Currently, there is good demand for chana at mill-level.

In the futures market, chana witnessed a correction of 1-3 per cent from the previous close. On Monday, chana August futures on the NCDEX closed at Rs 2,245.
