Rice basmati drifted by Rs 100 quintal at the wholesale grains market on Thursday due to fall in demand against adequate stocks position.
However, other grains moved in a narrow range in limited deals and pegged at the last levels.
Traders said easing demand from retailers against ample stocks position mainly helped rice basmati prices to trade lower.
