Gold Rate in Bihar
Bihar occupies a unique place in Indian history and tradition, with a culture steeped in heritage, a culture in which gold has played an intrinsic role. Gold is considered auspicious by residents of Bihar and forms an integral part of all celebrations and festivals. Gold rates in Bihar are largely dependent on international gold rates, as there are no gold mines in the state and a good portion of gold used comes from other parts of the country or abroad. The demand for gold in Bihar peaks during festivals like Diwali, Chhath, Teej and Chitragupta Pooja, which are celebrated across the state with great enthusiasm and fervour.
Bihar doesn’t account for a large portion of gold consumption in the country despite its large population, with most residents owning just small quantities of it. Gold jewellery continues to be the most popular form of owning gold in Bihar, with other options like bars and coins restricted to the elite.
