Import Of Gold Increased By 36 Percent In October

India has imported gold worth a total of $9.27 billion during the April-October period of FY21

The import of gold increased nearly 36 percent in October on a year-on-year basis to $2.50 billion, showed the data released by the Ministry of Commerce and Industry. The overall imports of gold during the ongoing financial year, however, continued to be significantly lower than the last fiscal due to the pandemic.

India had imported gold worth $1.84 billion in October last year. The rise in imports can be attributed to the anticipated demand for the yellow metal along with gold jewelry during the occasions of Dhanteras and Diwali, according to market experts.
