The July contract declined by Rs 5.70, or 0.64%, to Rs 879.70 per kg, with a business turnover of 1,335 lots.

Marketmen said weakness in copper and other base metals at the London Metal Exchange (LME) on fears that demand in China, the biggest user, may drop and resurfacing of concerns over Europe's debt crisis, mainly put pressure on nickel futures.

Further, slackened demand at domestic spot markets from alloy-makers also weighed on metal prices, they said.
