Surat, Nov. 4 - A decline in gold prices led to a huge rush of customers across jewellery stores in Surat.
The sudden drop in prices after a year-long high has benefited not only the buyers, but the sellers are also expecting a high growth in sale.
"As the gold prices have reduced a lot so the buyers' budget has become limited and the people are also looking at it for investment purpose. Today the gold price is Rs. 26,350, at the rate of 22 carat for Rs. 2,41,000 per 100 grams whereas near Diwali it was 274 and a year or so earlier it was around Rs. 3, 30,000 now the price has reduced to Rs. 2, 63,000," said a jeweller Tushar Choksi.
