MUMBAI (Commoditiescontrol) - Cotton prices gained by Rs 20 per maund at major markets in North India on Friday due to an increase in demand from the mills amid an uptrend in the global market.

A total of 17,000 bales of cotton today arrived in North India, unchanged from Thursday.

The price of 27-28.5MM cotton in Punjab quoted at Rs 4,080-4,110/maund. Similarly, 27-28MM cotton in Haryana was at Rs 4,070-4,090 per maund. While, price of 26.5-28MM cotton ruled at Rs 4,080 per maund in upper Rajasthan.
