In the ferrous category (per quintal), Copper heavy and Copper utensils crashed by Rs 500 each while Brass utensils and Brass cuttings came down by Rs 500 and Rs 300 respectively on renewal increase in offers by stock-holders because of subdued advice from LME along with Kolkata, Delhi and other centres.
